Metal-Plastic Voxel 3D Printing Pursued by Arizona State University

3D printing technology is so close, yet so far, from being ideal, especially for large OEMs. At the moment, a lot of the problems with industrial 3D printing are (still) related to quality control, scale and materials. Outside of those more immediate concerns, what we’d all really love is the ability to additively manufacture multiple materials in a single print. Not just different types of polymers, as already exists, but completely distinct categories of materials. The Fulton Undergraduate Research Initiative (FURI) at Arizona State University (ASU) hopes to bring the technology into the future through the development of a combined metal and plastics process.
