Teenager 3D Prints EyeGlasses for Charity

(3D Printing Industry) The annual Music for Life show is organized by Belgian radio station Studio Brussel in support of the Red Cross. This year, Ritik Mehta, a 13-year old kid from Belgium decided to organize his own Music For Life event where he helped 3D print glasses for interested attendees. The money will benefit a charity that provides children in Africa and Asia with sorely needed eyeglasses. “Lately I have been 3D printing my own custom glasses.It was my dream to do something with it and now I have found the perfect occasion,” said Ritik of his charity event held last month. Visitors were encouraged to draw a pair of glasses and have their design turned into a 3D design and printed on the spot with all proceeds being donated to Eyes for the World.
