3D printing flexible materials
During the pandemic I had a customized 3D printer built. What’s special about it is among others that it can print very elastic materials. There is a lot of fine-tuning to be done, and for sure the programming is way out of my comfort zone, but the first results are very promising. One of the many interesting things about it, is that all waste can be reused, and the material itself can be endlessly recycled. Biobased materials are being developed as well.
