BASF and Essentium create extra-strong 3D printed plastic/carbon fiber prosthetic leg

We reported last year on a major collaboration between chemicals giant BASF and 3D printing materials company Essentium, intended to develop a range of new materials solutions for 3D printing and other applications. A major breakthrough has recently been achieved by the partners, with Essentium’s subsidiary brand TriFusion Devices leveraging one of BASF’s advanced materials to develop an important new prosthetic device. The new prosthetic is the strongest 3D printed thermoplastic/carbon fiber definitive prosthetic leg socket available on the market.
