Whether you are a hobbyist or an expert, most of your projects need materials that are strong and tough. With this article, we aim to compare the toughest 3D printing materials and provide you with an answer.

What is the strongest 3D printing material?

A team of EPFL engineers has developed a 3D-printing method that uses light to make objects out of opaque resin in a matter of seconds. Their breakthrough could have promising applications in the biomedical industry, such as to make artificial arteries.

Objects can now be 3D-printed in opaque resin

Tapis Magique is a pressure-sensitive, knitted electronic textile carpet that generates 3D sensor data based on body gestures and drives an immersive sonic environment in real time.
