3D printing is both an art and a science, and science is what we're looking at today - particularly materials science. Every day we come across countless scientific studies having to do with 3D printing, and we've decided to summarize just a few recent ones for you today. 3D printer filament is an endless source for experimentation - how do we strengthen it? How do we recycle it? How do we make it, simply, better? These studies provide a few suggestions for both strengthening plastic 3D printed parts, as well as making their creation more eco-friendly.
