Evonik Industries has invested an undisclosed sum in Wiivv Wearables, a Canadian company that plans to use three-dimensional printing to produce biomechanically optimized shoe insoles. Evonik supplies the nylon 12 polymer that Wiivv will use to create the insoles. According to Evonik, Wiivv is one of the first companies to apply 3-D printing in mass production.
