Summer 2016 AutoDesk Internships
Autodesk Foundation invited the Enable Community Foundation to submit proposals for the Autodesk Student Expert Summer Internships program. This program supports Autodesk Student Experts using Autodesk software products to complete a supervised design project by the end of the summer.
A number of academic researchers from around the world responded and Autodesk selected three of the submitted proposals to post to the Expert Student network. All three were filled!
The development of a 3D printed hand prosthesis to monitor prosthetic usage
The development of The LifeHand 2.0 in conjunction with 3d Life Prints
The creation of anthropomorphic soft fingers for 3D-printed prosthetic devices
We hope you are as excited as we are to follow these projects throughout the summer!
