Super Bowl

This 3D printed helmet with cellular structures is perfect for every weather

Posted on Updated on

The helmet is perfect for ‘SUPER BOWL” and all kind of games.

This 3D printed helmet with cellular structures
is perfect for every weather, because no two people are same.


Hexo spreads the energy from an impact, the peak force is dramatically reduced (compared to foam). And with that, so is your risk of traumatic brain injury.
According to Jamie Cook, and leading material scientist Prof Mark Miodownik’s investigation into materials and structures,
“We need to design for the head’s unique curvature. The only way to make a curved honeycomb structure without distorting the mechanical properties is by 3D printing. Cellular structures have the highest crush strength to weight ratio. That’s a great mechanical property when you’re trying to make a bicycle helmet – which needs to be both safe and lightweight”.
According to Hexo customers, Kiera’s,” journey started with a 3D head scan. Taken quickly and precisely using our app at our London office. The 30,000 point mesh was then sent to our factory, where Kiera’s helmet was built.
They tried ‘Helmet’ in different weather conditions in the ‘Morocco’.
They figure it out the plans to work through minor issues with the chin straps and feeling incredibly inspired by the positive feedback on the helmet. A real success”.

Carbon 3D print with Diamond technology

Posted on Updated on

Carbon 3D is really about to change the game with “Diamond technology,” the collaboration creates lattice design pads of resin that are custom built to a player’s dimensions and position. This is advanced manufacturing. The designs and manufactures to make protective gear for football and other games.
According to Carbon co-founder and CEO Joseph DeSimone “We scan heads, and then you’ve got the shell of the helmet. The gap between the head and the shell is now customized. That space is now custom to everybody, and we fill that space with a lattice that controls the impact of the sport. It allows you to get really great performance as you control the impact that the players see.”

Super Bowl 50: Whiteclouds Providing 3D-printed brace for Panthers’ Linebacker Thomas Davis

Link Posted on Updated on

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.
