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.

According to the Airbus,” 3D printing allows airlines to increase fuel efficiency by decreasing weights of parts at low cost. Airbus has selected Stratasys technology to use 3D printing build parts for their aircraft. This technology was demonstrated at the Paris Air Show which was held in Paris, France from June 15th to June 21, 2015. 3D printing allows the creation of parts with complex geometries used in aircraft. The technology is used for manufacturing interior components of aircraft”.:)
