3D printer ink from the woods

Dear Sir or Madam,

Until now, Nitinol or stainless steel have been the means of choice for implants made with 3D printing. Now, an environmentally friendly alternative has been developed: ink made from cellulose nanocrystals, which is one of the main constituents of wood. Its special mechanical properties allow a number of applications in biomedicine, like implants and prostheses. Learn more about this new 3D printing ink in our News.

Have a sunny day!
