FATHOM, an advanced technology driven company with an expertise in 3D printing and additive manufacturing, released #CAST. Pronounced Hash Cast, it’s the new way to customize your broken arm cast with personal messages aggregated from your family and friends through social media.
Using the latest in advanced manufacturing technologies and 3D CAD software, an arm can be 3D scanned at a doctor’s office and a one-of-a-kind cast made in a breathable nylon material using an additive technology called Selective Laser Sintering (SLS).
Using the #CAST mobile app, users can approve or reject personalized messages collected through their preferred social networks. Once the maximum amount of characters allowed are approved by the user, a custom fit design is generated and built then delivered to their medical facility and fitted on the user by a specialist.
