Infographic: The Role of 3D Printing in Sports and the Olympics

Published on April 30, 2024 by Madeleine P.

Additive manufacturing has gained in popularity in many sectors, including the world of sports. More and more companies are experimenting with 3D printing to design more comfortable and safe equipment, or to improve athletes’ performance. Furthermore, with the upcoming 2024 Olympic Games in Paris, many projects and initiatives that combine sport with new technologies like 3D printing have emerged. That’s why, we have created an infographic delving into the use of additive manufacturing in sports, with key figures, dates and applications.

As we shall see, additive manufacturing has experienced remarkable growth in this field due to the benefits it brings to athletes and companies in the sports sector. These include increased speed in the design of prototypes or final parts, as well as reduced manufacturing costs and component weight. This latter feature is of key importance, as it can be decisive in improving sporting performance in competition. Nor should we underestimate the impact of design, which enables not only the creation of customized equipment, but also the development of higher-performance parts. Learn in more in detail in the below infographic, showing the different opportunities presented by 3D printing in sports and the Olympics.
