KIT researchers develop erasable ink for photopolymer 3D printing

Research from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany demonstrates the ability to repeatedly 3D print and erase microscopic objects in a light-reactive material. More than just a method of correcting 3D printed mistakes, the specially developed ink allows researchers to change the structure of an object at a later stage. Such material flexibility opens up the method of direct laser writing to a variety of applications, including in the area of medical research. How does it work? The researchers demonstrate the ink’s functionality by 3D printing nanoscopic lattice and “boxing-ring-like” structures. Lattices 3D printed entirely in the […]
