3D printing is one of the significant technological advancements of our time. Its potential uses are almost limitless. We’ve spotted so many examples at Springwise, from 3D-printed meat to 3D-printed artworks. Now, the design industry might be taking a more sustainable turn with 3D-printed wood. Researchers at Columbia University Department of Mechanical Engineering have managed to recreate blocks of wood, even down to the finer details of the internal grain pattern. 3D-printing has previously been limited in its capacity to recreate internal structures, especially in mimicking the complexities of organic materials. This is due to a combination of how digital…
