Jig and palm pieces of a prosthetic sit on the plate of a 3-D printer in the 556th Software Engineering Squadron. Members of the squadron collaborated with students from Mount St. Mary's High School who are working with e-Nable Foundation, which offers 3-D printing of assistive devices for low income children with malformed hands and/or wrists. These pieces took 7 hours and 49 minutes to print. The squadron printed two devices, one at 100% scale and the other at 125% scale. Both devices are intended for a 9-year-old girl in Kenya, one to use now and one to use after she's outgrown the first one. (U.S. Air Force photo/Kelly White)
