Researchers Develop New Method for Better Structural Control in #3DPrinting

Researchers have been inspired by nature to develop a new method for having better control over the structure of 3D-printed materials. Scientists from Harvard University and MIT used a ceramic foam ink to develop their method, with allows for the 3D-printing of materials with independently tunable macro-and microscale porosity, they said. Their approach has a number of applications and can be used to fabricate lightweight structural materials, thermal insulation, or tissue scaffolds, among others. The team was inspired by natural cellular structures and their ability to have remarkable structural capabilities despite being limited in design, according to researchers. For example, grass can support its own weight, resist strong winds, and recover even after being compressed, characteristics that are due to a combination of its hollow, tubular macrostructure and porous, or c...
