Bon Appetit – 3D Printed Life Improvement!

Today we are helping a loved one diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). ALS is a neurodegenerative  disease that weakens muscles and impacts physical function. I am sure that you remember the Ice Bucket challenge (www.alsa.org) to raise awareness, but you realized soon enough that the fight goes beyond ice buckets and frigid water. It really hits home when a family member has been diagnosed. To assist in his daily living we found this product on myminifactory.com designed by Luca Parmegiani (Thank You!).

This spoon and fork holder will be a great life improvement. The design can be downloaded here if you like to 3D print one yourself: https://www.myminifactory.com/object/fork-and-spoon-support-for-person-with-disabilities-5480

We 3D printed this design on our Stratasys Fortus 400mc Production System using a black ABS-M30 material. This resin is very durable and have great impact resistance, so it will handle regular daily wear.  Products that make life improvements are products that we love to print!
