In contrast to an FDM 3D printer, which extrudes melted plastic through a heated nozzle, a liquid 3D printer uses a UV light to solidify photopolymer resin. The result is a much finer resolution, but it comes at a cost. Read this article to find out more!
Researchers from Harvard University have developed a 3D printing platform for creating soft robotic systems embedded with sensors. The team uses a technique developed in the lab of Jennifer Lewis to 3D print organic ionic liquid-based conductive ink within soft elastomer matrices.
3D printed materials that change shape and color may be coming to market sooner than previously thought. A team of researchers at Dartmouth College presented a new smart ink which induces shape and color changes in 3D printed objects.
„3Doodler“ is considered to be the first 3D-printing pen: With this penshaped extruder you can „paint in 3D“ - using molten ABS and PLA instead of ink. Now the german tech-trade-company Pearl offers a low-price-competitor: Freesculpt FX1-free just came to market.
