Beyond nature, 3D printed Wood tissue

Posted on

 

According to the Professor Paul Gatenholm, who has led this research within Chalmers University of Technology’s Wallenberg Wood Science Centre and researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden,” have succeeded in 3D printing with a wood-based ink in a way that mimics the unique ‘ultrastructure’ of wood. Their research could revolutionize the manufacturing of green products. Through emulating the natural cellular architecture of wood, they now present the ability to create green products derived from trees, with unique properties – everything from clothes, packaging, and furniture to healthcare and personal care products.
This is a breakthrough in manufacturing technology. It allows us to move beyond the limits of nature, to create new sustainable, green products. It means that those products which today are already forest-based can now be 3D printed, in a much shorter time. And the metals and plastics currently used in 3D printing can be replaced with a renewable, sustainable alternative.”

    Go look at the 3D art…

    Thank you so much for sharing. We always want to learn history about 3D printing:)

    3D printing, as invented by the Mayans

    Sculpteo announced the discovery of 3D printers in an ancient Mayan city deep in the Guatemalan jungle. The discovery would mean 3D printing is at least a millennia older than previously thought.
