3D Printing Extremely Viscous Materials Using Ultrasonic Vibrations

Watch this video to see how extremely viscous (μ >1000 Pa·s) plastic solids can be 3D-printed using a relatively simple and low-cost nozzle vibration approach that can enable the widespread fabrication of electronics, biomedical devices, pharmaceuticals and food using viscous heterogeneous material precursors in residential, educational, and industrial settings.
