Honey-like inks lead to a new 3D printing method

Honey-like inks lead to a new 3D printing method | 3D_Materials journal | Scoop.it
Research at the University of Akron, Ohio has developed a new method of 3D printing by extruding inks from a nozzle in layers and using light to simultaneously cure it. The technique is termed “Direct-print photopolymerization for 3D printing” and works in almost opposite way to traditional stereolithography (SLA).Direct 3D printing in comparison to SLAStereolithography
