Holy Faya is a creative studio founded by Celia Elmasu and Nelly Zagury,a French artist duo. They create unique ornaments using 3D printing combined with traditional jewelry. Their jewelry combines PLA with precious metals. According to them “We dream, we draw, we design the 3D modeling, we print, we add precious materials.

Panthers’ linebacker Thomas Davis injured his arm before the Super Bowl 50 game. He had surgery to put metal plate and screws in his arm. He said “I’ve got two weeks to heal up. Come on, you know me. I ain’t missing the Super Bowl, you know that.” However, he may get some help from a 3D printing company Whiteclouds.
Whiteclouds, a 3D printing company obtained a 3D scan of his arm and 3D printed arm brace for him. The arm brace is made from a blend of plastic and rubber. The arm brace was 3D printed in 30 hours using Stratasys Connex machines. Whiteclouds is based in Ogden, Utah.
Dalit Peleg, an Israeli fashiondesigner has 3D printed entire fashion collections using small consumer 3D printers. She experimented with different printers and different materials. She realized that materials like PLA are inflexible and not suitable for use as fabric. However, she found a material FilaFlex which is flexible and strong. She 3D printed a red jacket using a Witbox3D printer and FilaFlex material. Once she figured out how to 3D print textile, she started creating full collections including shoes. She has shown that we can design our own textile and manufacture clothes from our home using 3D printing.
