3D Printed Microstructures

Applications of 3D Printed Heterogeneous Microstructures

A microstructure is the small-scale porous structure of any material, which can typically be viewed only through magnification. The microstructure of a material, whether metal, polymer, or ceramic, can determine physical properties like weight distribution, flexibility, and strength. Microstructure optimization can occur naturally; human bones, for example, are made up of complex structures that make…
