Nice story, Beth, especially the part about Emma's magic arms. That's an impressive example of the use of 3D printing. Were the magic arms an addition to her actually arms (as in joint replacement)?

Love that last point, Naperlou. Absolutely, 3D printing is advancing to cover all ends of the spectrum in terms of manufacturing. In terms of medical technologies, it's really had an impact even beyond the manufacture of custom prosthetics. Check out our slide show on 3D printing in the medical sector.

Beth, this is a great story.  With the advancement of electronics and design software, the missing piece was manufacturing.  As another great example of the power of 3D printed objects this is very encouraging.  After all, if you can make a receiver for a gun with 3D, you should be able to make good prosthetics.
