Triathlete Joe Townsend has raced in the Paralympics, World Championships, Ironmans and Invictus Games and won a large number of medals along the way! As with all professional athletes they are looking to enhance performance any way they can. Joe turned to 3D printing to see how he could use this to “strive for physical and mechanical perfection”. He found several problems with current equipment on the market, which ultimately led him to look at producing bespoke adaptive parts in house. Joe had previous experience with 3D printing bespoke parts but found that he needed to be able to produce considerably stronger parts. With the need to produce high strength, high quality custom parts Joe’s search pointed towards Markforged 3D printing.
