3D printing involves countless different types of hardware, software, and materials. It is the perfect medium for continual experimentation—even into a different and more unknown realm like 4D. And once there, the whole cycle of experimentation and innovation begins again with different variables. In a recent study, ‘,’ by Xiaolong Chen, Xinhua Liu, Mengzheng Ouyang, Jingyi Chen, Oluwadamilola Taiwo, Yuhua Xia, Peter R. N. Childs, Nigel P. Brandon, and Billy Wu, metal materials are being experimented with, rather than the usual polymers. Illustration of the low cost electrochemical multi-metal 3D printer. (a) Front view.
