Bendable 3D Printed Mesostructured Material

Andreas Bastian has come up with an incredible solution, which allows just about any material’s mechanical properties to be modified, so that they can take on more purpose in our daily lives. Imagine taking materials that traditionally do not bend, such as PLA or metal, and 3D printing them in such a fashion that these physical limitations no longer exist. Bastian refers to his “new” materials as “mesostructured material”.
