Rich Lehrer turned the making of Project Egress Part#31 into a collaboration with his son, Max. Which we LOVE.

Read on for Rich’s backstory!

Artist Statement: “In 2013, when he was three, my son Max became one of the first recipients of a 3D printed prosthetic when a group of my 8th grade students and I from Brookwood School in Manchester, MA, created this functional “Robohand” device for him. This launched us into the world of 3D printing and over the past 6 years I have explored many authentic design initiatives with my students.

Interestingly, in the past few years, Max has also become interested in CAD designing and the use of 3D printing to solve real problems. When I mentioned the “Project Egress” project to him he expressed an interest in being involved and so he helped me download the files, slice them, and print them using Brookwood’s Ultimaker 2+ printer.”
