Tech Peek | 3D Printed Helmet
3D printing is literally a game-changing technology — for athlete health. Riddell, one of the leading names in head protection, recently collaborated with 3D leader Carbon to design a helmet that features an elastomer lattice design with more than 140,000 individual struts for advanced impact absorption. By using 3D scanning, Carbon ensures a perfect custom fit for each athlete. The “Carbon Lattice Engine” leverages physical simulation and optimization techniques to tune structures to further manage both linear and rotational impact energies, customizing the helmets to match the player’s style. Through technology, the science geeks of the world are now protecting the jocks.
