3D Printing Flexible Materials Now Possible With Droplet-Based System

3D Printing Flexible Materials Now Possible With Droplet-Based System

Engineers are upping the 3D printing game by pushing the boundaries in new ways, and now, a team of researchers from the University of California, Davis, have something new up their sleeve.

 .

They have developed a new way of 3D printing that allows for finely tuned flexible materials to be printed thanks to a droplet-based, multiphase microfluidic system. The approach works so well that they were able to efficiently print materials with potential applications in soft robotics, tissue engineering, and wearable technology.

 .

You might be familiar with 3D printing , however, may not know the itty bitty details. Here is how it goes for a traditional extrusion-based 3D printer: the material used for printing is pushed through a nozzle and joined to make the structure repeatedly until the end product forms, making it an efficient and cost-effective process. However, as you’d imagine, this makes printing stuff made of more […]
