Is the future of 3D printing in a smarter use of materials?
Netfabb, a digital fabrication software company, made this video demonstrating the capillary effect of a 3D printed structure designed with their software. At first glance, it may not be too impressive to see liquid rise slightly, but it demonstrates enormous potential.
With traditional manufacturing, material is a solid mass, but 3D printing allows material to be produced with various densities and extremely complex structures. In this blogger’s opinion, this may be the true future of 3D printing.
