Cleveland teachers use 3D printer to make prosthetic for student with no arms


A student born with no arms and no hands is experiencing life in a whole new way, thanks to two teachers and a 3D printer.
An art teacher with a 3D printer at John Adams High School wanted to do some good, and he mentioned that to his friend, a fellow teacher across the District at Lincoln-West High School, where 19-year-old Christopher Nelson attended. Now the recent graduate has a prosthetic arm he can use as he begins studying at Cuyahoga Community College.
