A new resin expands the scope of volumetric printing

A new light-sensitive polymer resin gives researchers more control over 3D-printed objects. Since its inception in the early 1980s, 3D printing technology has emerged as a futuristic and revolutionary means of manufacturing. Among the many innovations is a technique called volumetric additive printing, in which an entire 3D object is is solidified from a photosensitive […]

Key advance for printing circuitry on wearable fabrics — ScienceDaily

Electronic shirts that keep the wearer comfortably warm or cool, as well as medical fabrics that deliver drugs, monitor the condition of a wound and perform other tasks, may one day be manufactured more efficiently thanks to a key advance by Oregon State University researchers. The breakthrough involves inkjet printing and materials with a crystal […]
