Direct 3D printing of two-component silicone
Summary The system being developed by a team led by a King’s College London researcher is unique in its ability to 3D print a biocompatible two-part silicone required for medical devices such as facial/body prostheses. Silicone formulations have been developed and printed using a modified 3D printer with a custom print head to print room-tem...
