Colloidal self-assembly has the potential to revolutionize 3D printing

Self-assembly is the ultimate aim of new research, and presents a future vision of 3D printing at a molecular level. The concept describes how particles can be programmed to arrange themselves into virtually any shape possible. The resulting microstructures formed would be capable of performing tasks the way cells do, and even create the basis […]

3D bio-printing advances as CWRU improves PLA ‘scaffolding’ used in medicine by adding graphene

New 3D bio-printing research shows that combining materials could be the secret to 3D printing bones and organs. A paper from Case Western Reserve University …
