Printing lightweight, flexible, and functional materials: Multimaterial 3-D printing via active mixing and switching printheads — ScienceDaily

Researchers have designed new multimaterial printheads that mix and print concentrated viscoelastic inks that allow for the simultaneous control of composition and geometry during printing. Using active mixing and fast-switching nozzles, these novel printheads change material composition on the fly and could pave the way for entirely 3-D printed wearable devices, soft robots, and electronics.
