Skyward, Ltd. Lends a Helping Hand
In 2015, Skyward hosted a Computer-Aided Design and Drafting (CADD) class from the Springfield-Clark Career Technology Center to assist the class in their senior design project. “Project Helping Hand,” as the class named it, involved designing and 3D printing a prosthetic hand for one of their classmates, who was born without a fully developed right hand.
Skyward guided the team through the process of 3D scanning the student’s hands, reverse engineering his anatomy, and modeling a prosthetic using state-of-the-art tools and methodologies.
Skyward was excited to play a small part in inspiring students take an interest in making the world a better place through science and engineering.
