AGENCY OF RELEVANCE
Material Innovation, especially as it pertains to 3D printer
materials, is a hot focus of R&D. Companies like
Stratasys are driving 3D printer material invention,
resulting in new material composites with a wide range
of physical properties, from metals to plastics to rubbers
to mud. In addition, ﬂexible textiles, and fuzzy fabrics
can be 3D printed. In 2016, material innovation in 3D
printing is expected to explode.
Already we have seen 3D
printing materials create hair,
fabric, clay houses, and ﬁgures
made from coffee grounds?
What do you predict will be the
next big 3D printed material?
Could you see yourself living in a
3D printed environment?
