Using FDM 3D Printing to Make Body Armor Stronger, More Comfortable, and Stab-Resistant

Using FDM 3D Printing to Make Body Armor Stronger, More Comfortable, and Stab-Resistant

As police officers participate in a multitude of daily, patrol, and even criminally-related duties, like narcotics investigations, they often deal with the threat of sharp force injury; to put it more plainly, there’s a good likelihood that they could get stabbed on the job. While there are several commercially available stab-resistant materials to keep police safe […]
