Stratasys Hits the Slopes with First Functional 3D Printed Skis

(Stratasys blog) Stratasys co-founder, chairman and chief innovation officer Scott Crump recently braved the slopes to test a pair of what are believed to be the first fully functional 3D printed skis. Dominic Mannella, the Stratasys senior applications engineer who designed the skis, noted:  ”I am not aware of anyone who has ever taken 3D printed skis downhill before. This kind of adventure is right up Scott’s alley — he’s a longtime thrill-seeker with many exploits to his credit.” Some ski industry insiders have even suggested that this could be a game-changer for the custom ski business, allowing skiers to purchase skis truly dialed in to their exact specifications.
