Amputee bonds with son thanks to 3D printed bionic hand

Amputee bonds with son thanks to 3D printed bionic hand
For 21 years, Danny Florence has lived with one hand. But when he became a father, he decided to apply for an Open Bionics Hero Arm. With the help of the maxon driven prosthesis he can now build a strong bond with his son. At the age of five, Florence lost both legs, a hand and most of his fingers.

3D printed professional luminaires for a circular economy

3D printed professional luminaires for a circular economy
Signify has unveiled its facilities to 3D print light shades and fittings (luminaires) in the Netherlands and plans to establish 3D printing factories in the US, India and Indonesia. This highly flexible, more sustainable form of manufacturing uses a 100% recyclable polycarbonate material, which allows luminaires to be tailored to customer’s exact needs and recycled at the end of their life, supporting a circular economy.

3D printed parts help get the wheels in motion

3D printed parts help get the wheels in motion
Wheelchairs are a wonderful brainchild, though no one is quite sure when it was first invented. The first one on record was made for Phillip II of Spain in towards the end of the 1500s. Since then, incremental developments have been made but the basic design (except for specialised sports wheelchairs) remains the same.

3D printing cuts design to manufacture time to hours

3D printing cuts design to manufacture time to hours
Briggs Automotive Company (BAC), the British manufacturer of the recently launched Mono R, Stratasys, has revealed the impact additive manufacturing is having on the design and production of the latest edition to the BAC elite supercar offering. When faced with detrimental delays to the design process of an essential airbox, the team turned to Stratasys FDM additive manufacturing to produce fully functional prototypes in record time and improve final, on-road performance.
