It’s a formidable combination as designer chemistry meets 3D printing, proving that the two may have a very promising future together. In a recent research project funded by the University of Washington, chemists and engineers collaborated in using 3D printing to manufacture inexpensive sensors that may prove to be invaluable in areas such as construction and infrastructure — and beyond.

With the trend toward incorporating useful materials into 3D printing such as electronics, researchers set out to see whether they could indeed integrate chemistry into the printing process — and the answer turned out to be a resounding yes.
