NYU’s 3D printed microballoon foam could help keep submarines afloat

3D printed foams are used in experiments by materials scientists to make everyday objects smarter, and more effective for purpose. Containing millions of hollow microballoon air pockets, foams are lightweight, and enable materials to be manipulated in new and exciting ways. Foam has been used variously to make a type of 3D graphene, form fitting silicone, and […]

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 […]
