While hardware, software, and a variety of design mechanisms are critical to 3D printing, materials science lies at the heart of this progressive technology which continues to infiltrate the mainstream today. 3D printing with metal and carbon fiber is especially popular now, and become more affordable and accessible to everyone, while initially being restricted to industrial companies with greater financial resources and research capabilities. Graphene, sometimes referred to as a ‘semi-metal’ has been touted as a material full of miraculous capabilities due to its ultra-light weight and incredible strength—far surpassing that of a diamond or even steel. Could this material become more mainstream as well? If so, would that be a good thing? Now, two researchers from India have published findings in ‘ Comprehensive Application of Graphene: Emphasis on Biomedical Concerns ,’ exploring the use of graphene in 3D printing along with the potential for toxicity upon exposure to […]
