Walking in Style: Merging 3D Printing and Functional Robotics

Integrating 3D printing capabilities with robotics opens new and unimaginable frontiers. Design engineers from 3D Systems Corporation have teamed up with Ekso Bionics, manufacturer of the bionic exoskeleton suit named EksoTM to develop a research project that will showcase the first partially 3D printed bionic exoskeleton in the world. This is an ongoing project, which explores how 3D printing design can bring us a step closer to fusing a person's biology and individuality with technology.  Please join us for the first-ever global appearance of the newly designed 3D Printed Bionic Exoskeleton Suit.
