3-D printing with Cellulose

Posted on Updated on

According to John Hart and Sebastian Pattinson, a former postdoc in mechanical engineering who is now a lecturer at the University of Cambridge in the U.K., “demonstrated a technique using the world’s most abundant natural polymer-cellulose. at MIT,” says early education on 3-D printing is the key to helping the technology expand as an industry. They are very much enjoyed creating and teaching the course and they are proud of what the students did, and what it means about the future potential of additive manufacturing.
Cellulose offers many advantages over current plastics-based feedstocks: It’s inexpensive, renewable, biodegradable, mechanically robust, and chemically versatile. In addition, it’s widely used in pharmaceuticals, packaging, clothing, and a variety of other products, many of which could be customized using 3-D printing”.

    It’s good to be back here, but why do you write blogs from 2014 instead of 2018?
