Printing prosthetics on the MakerBot

Over on the MakerBot forums, Youssef Tayeb just shared this full-scale model of a trans-tibial socket, which was printed in 16 pieces, and reinforced with a layer of fiberglass. He’s started an Open Prosthetics project group, is working on getting instructions and design files onto Thingiverse, and is looking for constructive criticism/input about the project. [thanks, Marty!]
