Imperial College London introduces multimaterial 3D printer for alloys, elastomers and resin

Research led by Professor Paul Curtis of Imperial College London and the UK’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory, presents a 3D printer configured for multimaterial fabrication. The research is available in the latest edition of the 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing journal. The 3D printer is capable of working with up to three different materials, allowing open experimentation with low-melting point alloys, 3D printable elastomers, and resins. The system was designed as an inexpensive alternative to commercially available multimaterial 3D printers, such as the Stratasys Connex range. The scientists say that 3D printers with a high price tag discourage […]
