A study called “Digital Wood: 3D Internal Color Texture Mapping” has been published by academic journal 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing , and explores a voxel printing technique that is described as an “unexplored 3D printing process that allows controlling the colour and material structure at every resolvable point of a printed object”. Printing using voxels with printing has so far been unexplored, and allows for better control of the colour and material structure at every point of an object. Despite the progress, the team say the scanning technique is “both energy and time consuming, and renders the […]
