Great story about 3D Printed prosthetics to provide independence

There’s a great story this month about how a former teaching is creating 3D printed prosthetics for people without limbs in order to provide them with greater independence.  The angle here is this appropriate quote:

“I only needed a desktop, computer aided design (CAD) software called Solidworks and a 3D printer,” explained Sujana

In addition to this awesome use SOLIDWORKS and 3D printing, a great new enhancement in SOLIDWORKS 2015 is the unique ability to 3D print directly to 3D printers using either 3MF or AMF formats on Windows 8.1 systems.  Though the process is more complex than printing to a traditional paper (2D) printer, it is similar in that you no longer have to create intermediate files and switch applications.
