Plastics and metals are the dominant materials in the current 3D printing field. This talk looked at lesser publicized materials and related processes. Specifically, ceramics, graphene (and other nano-materials), hydro & aerogels in the context of 3D printing.
The current academic research, commercial applications (and relevant patents), production of materials and the possible future developments will be reviewed with reference to independent research conducted for this presentation.
3D printing has grown its parameters to food too and the future of 3D food printing will give us a complete different vision in 3D Printing.
