LED-Based UV Light Can Rapidly Convert 3D Printing Polymeric Inks Into Solids

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
NOTTINGHAM, England, Nov. 14, 2017 — A breakthrough in rapid additive manufacturing that involves UV light solidifying the inks used could pave the way for fully functional 3D-printed electronic circuits. Researchers at the University of Nottingham have pioneered the breakthrough and hope to produce functional components such as 3D antennae and fully printed sensors from multiple materials including metals and plastics.
