This is absoutely fantastic use of 3D printing technolgy and it's only getting better and less expensive. Thanks for sharing.

Wow, that is really amazing. It's amazing the way they can use 3D imaging to just "print" an exoskeleton and it's replacement parts. Yay science! Is there a blueprint for an exoskeleton in the Bible? No? Just asking.
Seriously though... What would happen if the Great Green Arkleseizure didn't fram up the rammastam before the hermite curve achieved maximum nurdfurdle velocity? Now THAT would be something. AmIrite?

Wow! Even without the 3D printing this is beautiful. The fact that something as cool as 3D printing made this so possible is amazing!

Thanks for sharing.

This is cool too. They have developed a machine that will allow you to recycle your own plastic bottles for printing. When that comes on the market, the cost of 3D printing will drop close to zero. I assume that such recycled plastics have limited uses, strength-wise, and may not be useful for structural components such as the exoskeleton, but still, the whole thing is getting more and more amazing.

I currently theorize that in ten or fifteen years it will be very common for a person to either buy something that is highly customized via 3D printing (as opposed to buying something mass produced) or print a large percentage of desired products on their own machine. Unless we can print body parts and stuff, I'll probably not live that long, but I hope the rest of you do.

No, there was the original sin remember!  :'(   But if we do enough prayer and obsequiousness then God will bless science with a little dribble of progress every now and again - for His eternal glory amen.

It may not be useful for stuff that requires durability and tensile strength, but I'm sure there are plenty of things that a person could make with recycled plastic even considering that.

And yes, it is amazing.

Fuck the science.and the doctors, it was obviously the entire work of an all-mighty god. Probably Vishnu.
