12 most innovative 3D printing materials.

When it comes to 3D printing, it’s hard to ignore the various types of materials it leverages: plastics, metals, ceramics and etc. There are, however, plenty of “raw” materials that will leave you wondering: “how […]

Innovative wood-based materials for 3D printing

As an organic polymer, lignin plays an important role in providing rigid support for plants. It strengthens the cell walls of plants and causes them to turn woody (lignify) – a mechanism […]

U.S lab develops self-healing 3D printing materials

The United States Army Research Laboratory and Texas A&M University have developed a family of synthetic materials that are capable of self-healing. The polymers vary in texture, from ultra-soft to […]

3D printing post-processing

Post-processing is to 3D printing what clothes are to humans. You get the gist, right? 3D prints,more often than not, require various degrees of post-production treatment to be “presentable”. Whereas […]
