Big Step to Reduce Materials in 3D Printing

One of the reasons 3D printing remains expensive is because so much material is required to create a structurally sound part. Soon, 3D prints might be getting cheaper due to a new technique that enhances a part’s structure while reducing material.
A paper written by researchers at the University of Science and Technology of China states that 3D printing material volumes can be reduced by up to 70% with a newly devised printing optimization scheme.
According to the researchers, the new scheme uses an algorithm to take an input shape, hollow it out, add the minimum amount of support struts, and print a “geometrically approximate” physically stable 3D printing part.
