Yale Professor Jan Schroers and his graduate students have developed some unique uses for metallic glasses, a particularly tough metallic alloy that can be molded into useful products (like cell phone cases) at relatively lower temperatures and pressures. According to Yale Professor Jan Schroers and his research team,” they used a new approach to 3D print objects from the metallic glass a relatively new material stronger than even the best metals, but with the pliability of plastic”.

3D printing Waterproof Material
I was sitting near the pool, my foot slept and my cell phone fell in pool water:(
Because of that I spent $1000 for new cell phone. Just like my phone, several 3D printed designs are not water proof and can get damaged in water. But, now we don’t have to worry we can have WATERPROOF material to cover these designs.
Polyamide is a commonly used material for 3D printing. A company i.materialize allows adding a waterproof finish to your 3D-printed objects, figurines or flower vases.:)
