Researchers Develop 3D Printable Ink for Creating Complete Electronic Circuits

In the last several years, much research has gone into the possibility of using 3D printers to create functional electronic devices. Now, researchers at the University of Nottingham have gotten one step closer to that goal by developing a method for printing complete electronic circuits using new types of 3D printable ink. This new process […]

History of 3D Printing

3D printing uses computer technology to create 3-dimensional solid objects. 3D printing combines the additive process or layering the material in thin horizontal cross-sections, and the computer program to print solid objects. You can create almost anything from 3D printing including toys, guns, or machine parts. The history of 3D printing is important to understanding […]
