Callum Miller has been a member of our Facebook group since 2018, his son Jamie was born without a left hand and his life changed when he made him a Steampunk style prosthesis using a 3D printer.

Here’s what he told Steampunk Tendencies  « My son and i would like to share our 3d printed Steampunk Style prosthetic arm with you that we designed and printed at home together, we’ve been making prosthetic arms for around 2 years now, each arm takes around 30 to 40 hours to print and assemble and we’ve made a few versions of this one it’s his favourite arm as he loves the style.

Jamie was born with no left hand so 2 years ago we bought a 3d printer and decided to make our own prosthetic at home, and we also make them free for other kids in our spare time, these arms for other kids are provided FREE of charge so we have a gofund page for donations as all costs and time and donated by myself, my only charge for other kids is a small fee of a couple of chocolate bars as the smiles watching them use their arm to pick up something for the first time ever is priceless!!!

Being part of the E-nable community now allows me to help others and Jamie loves to raise awareness to others and has been featured on many news sources so sharing is the key here, there’ll be someone you know who could benefit from this type of thing so share aware or share the posts from my wall if you wish and every penny donated goes towards helping Jamie and other kids so i’m hoping you like this style of arm, we have some new designs coming soon including EMG sensor robotic arms using his muscles to move the fingers but please be kind in your comments as Jamie will reading them, he’d also be happy you throwing some more idea’s around.«

Hiya Dustin, yes Jamie’s arm is fully functional, he can pick up things, open doors, ride his bike and scooter and anything else he couldn’t do with only having one hand, he’s also got a mean left hook lol, I’m dad by the way, check out some of his videos on our progress on our youtube channel

Jamie, your arm is beyond the coolest thing I’ve ever seen a real kid have! And the fact that it not only looks cool but it’s actually functional! Mind-blown! If I didn’t read the story I would guess from your pic that you were a kid in Hollywood playing in a movie! Seriously reminds me of Ironman! And your Dad is a real life Super Hero for making these amazing arms for other kids that need them as well! You two together are reaching out and touching so many hearts by not only sharing your story but by being the helping hand for other kids as well! Bravo!
(Puns intended!) Haha!

Hey there, Callum and Jamie! Fellow amputee here, I wear a myo-electric arm but I’m also a cosplayer and 3D printing nerd! A fellow amputee friend of mine just yesterday asked me if there was any way I could help print her a steampunk arm for a steampunk cosplay of Belle from Beauty and the Beast, and my search ran pretty dry until I came across this post! I was planning on printing her an e-Nable arm and maybe painting it with a design, but I was wondering if there’s any chance you’d be willing to share the files used for your steampunk arm! The design is gorgeous and I think it’s exactly what she’s looking for. Let me know when you get a chance, and keep up the great work!!
