An 83-year old woman is the first in the world to receive a full 3D-printed titanium lower jaw implant. Amazingly, the combined effort by researchers and engineers from Belgium and the Netherlands is said to have allowed the patient unrestricted mandibular movement within a day of surgery.
Using additive manufacturing with a proprietary material they developed, Protos Eyewear based in San Francisco is making rapid prototyped glasses and shades. Their materials are lighter than titanium and stronger than acetate frames. Best of all, they can make a pair of glasses unique to you and the shape of your face. #eyewear #fashion #materials
