Feb. 1, Desktop Engineering: Last year may have been the Year of Electronics 3D printing, as evidenced by activity with conductive inks, conductive plastics, conformal surface-deposition and multi-material 3D design. The building blocks for 3D-printed/3D structural electronics are popping up across a wide spectrum of cost and applications, from F-Electric conductive filament offered by Functionalize to direct-printed sensors made possible by Optomec’s Aerosol Jet systems. This month, DE takes a look at grad students, individual innovators, system manufacturers and industry giants who are all contributing to this latest evolution in additive manufacturing.
