A new 3D-printing method to fabricate 3D porous models in one step.

Researchers at Singapore University of Technology and Design have developed a 3D-printing process to control digitally how porous polymer materials are by controlling material depositBy: Elizabeth MontalbanoMaterials & AssemblySensorsSeptember 19, 2019

Developing materials in which porosity can be controlled has been an aim for scientists due to their diverse uses in energy storage, sensors, tissue engineering, and myriad other applications.

However, polymer-based porous material design has been a challenge because of limitations in the materials, something that 3D printing and other new fabrication technologies have helped but not solved.
