When Matej Vlašič was told that his son, Nik, who is afflicted with cerebral palsy, may never sit up, he began looking for a way to give him the best life possible regardless. With a little help from 3D printing and physical therapy, Nik can now not only sit up but also walk, cycle and dance. Vlašič has now set up aNImaKe, a company to help other parents in a similar situation.
Zaha Hadid Architects' latest work is the H-Line hat which was inspired by the firm's condo at 520 West 28th Street, New York. Designed by boss and collaborator, Patrik Schumacher, the hat was made using 3D printing for a Friends of the High Line fundraiser.

With just the wave of a magnet, MIT researchers can control soft 3D printed structures and make them complete a range of movements, such as crawling, rolling up or jumping. The engineers believe this technique could be used for "promising applications" in biomedicine.
In Bristol, UK, this summer, The Bristol Children's Hospital Charity - The Grand Appeal, is launching "Gromit Unleashed 2" a sculpture trail which includes larger-than-life characters from the TV show and three three 3D printed sculptures.
The 3D model marketplace MyMiniFactory is collaborating with Cartoon Network to give makers access to official designs of their favorite characters from the hit television series Adventure Time.
Purdue researchers have developed a process which enables them to 3D print extremely viscous materials. Due to this, they should be able to 3D print everything from cookie dough to biomedical implants.
Freshfiber is a European design agency which is now selling a 3D printed iPhone X case created using 3D printers in Nylon fiber material. The design is both stylish and functional.
Studio H is a multidisciplinary design studio which developed a 3D printing project which takes fruit and vegetables (thrown out due to their ugliness) and creates nutritious snacks which are interesting shapes.
MIT researchers have developed a technique which turns 3D scans into highly detailed, multi-material 3D prints. Utilizing voxel-based printing championed by the likes of Stratasys, the process could be beneficial for presurgical planning.
WASP, the Italian 3D printer manufacturer, is donating and setting up a laboratory for 3D printing artificial limbs at the University of Damascus, Syria. Engineering graduate students will then print prosthetics for those in need.
Dave & Buster's and HTC Vive are teaming up to bring VR headsets and multiplayer games to 114 locations across the US and Canada starting from next week. They're calling it the largest commercial VR arcade deployment.
Researchers at ETH Zurich and Caltech developed a 3D printed submarine which doesn't need fuel, electricity, propellant or even an engine. Instead, it exploits temperature changes in the water to complete complex movements.
In an effort to show how useful 3D printing can be when you only take the benefits of the technology and work around the negatives, researchers from Sandia National Laboratories have developed a 3D printed telescope in a third of the time and at a fifth of the traditional cost.
Allegorithmic, the 3D texturing software company, is releasing ready-t0-use materials to help make creating photorealistic 3D models of vehicles a whole lot easier. The materials will be released over the next five weeks.
Nicholas Unis is a college-student developing a 3D printing sneaker brand called UnisBrands LLC. His target market is those who buy and trade footwear, but Unis' company will also make recycling for discount a possibility.
Elementary school student Julian Caraballo wanted to play violin and become part of his school's band, and he didn't let a birth defect on his right hand stop him. Instead, three students from Drexel University helped him achieve his dream with a 3D printed prosthetic device.
