Software Lets Designers Exploit The Extremely High Resolution Of 3-D Printers, MIT Study

Published: Aug 07, 2017

Such precise control of printed objects' microstructure gives designers commensurate control of the objects' physical properties -- such as their density or strength, or the way they deform when subjected to stresses. But evaluating the physical effects of every possible combination of even just two materials, for an object consisting of tens of billions of cubes, would be prohibitively time consuming.
