Leading Edge Aviation Propulsion aka LEAP - uses fan blades made from Liquid Resin Molding, which allows for a more complex shape. At rest, as shown here, the blades are at their maximum geometry. As the fan's rotational speed increases - the blades untwist. The LEAP also uses about half the amount of blades the CFM56-3 uses [NIkon D750 Sigma 24-105 f/4 Nikon SB-910 fill flash]

Engine blades are one of the most exciting advancements in art (not to mention technology) in aviation. I'm so happy I got a photo of myself in a LEAP nacelle.
