Research & Design

Our Research and Design team works closely with the Solidworks and Fusion360 modeling programs to design our prosthetic training device prototypes. Don’t know how to use Solidworks or Fusion360? No worries! We are more than happy to show you the ropes as long as you are devoted to the work. The Research and Design team is responsible brainstorming ideas and 3D modeling parts for the training devices. As well has hands for specific children, R&D will also be working on an electronic hand. Innovative ideas are strongly encouraged!

Production

Our Production team does all of the 3D printing. They build and adjust hands and other training devices for families we currently have relations with. They help make our dreams become reality, assuring quality and comfort.

Engagement

Our Engagement team is for members who want to work outside of modeling and 3D printing, but still wants to help the cause. They handle our fundraising, marketing, social media, photography, and web design.

"I first joined Digi Digits in the beginning of my freshman year and have loved it ever since. As a mechanical engineering major, I love to design and apply my abilities to help others. I hope that through Digi Digits we will be able to help and assist kids in need. From thinking of ideas to 3D printing them we are truly making a difference within the world around us and I feel honored to be a part of it."

Tacie Telesky

Secretary

“As we all know, growing up is hard enough, so I can’t even begin to imagine what these kids with disabilities must go through as they tackle life’s challenges with an additional burden weighing them down. Through Digi Digits, I have been given the remarkable opportunity to change kids’ lives by making their basic, everyday tasks easier to accomplish. Being a part of something that is so much bigger than myself is absolutely incredible, and I am very grateful that I am involved in such an amazing mission.”

Raiid Ahmed

Production Lead

“I joined Digi digits early in my freshman year for the ability to transform designs and concepts into real mechanisms that benefited real people. I stayed because of the friends and relationships that I formed as a welcome byproduct to the projects we worked on. As Production Lead, I want to provide new members with the same experiences and continue turning Digi Digit’s ideas into reality.”
