In general, the strength of a printed object depends on several factors, including the properties of the printing material, the printing process, and the design of the object itself. At the same time, advancements in 3D printing technology have led to improvements in the strength and durability of printed objects; claims of “5D printing” or any other type of printing that purports to be significantly stronger than conventional 3D printing should be approached with skepticism.
5D Printing is five times stronger. 5D Printing makes more vital parts.
In the case of Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs (MERL), 5D printing refers to using five-axis technology to 3D print objects from multiple directions.
Almost all 3D printers today are three-axis machines that print parts one horizontal layer at a time.
