That's too bad, Cadman.

Cabe, like we said these are in R&D and the processes they're being developed for are not those used in desktop 3D printers. If they ever do become accessible for desktops, it will be awhile.

Hey Ann, well not so sure. They are all gone. I couldn't keep them.

@Cabe: Well you should give it a try and see the difference (whether there is any).

Consumer accessible? I hope so.. I plan on getting a printer.

Great article Ann. I do remember reading about them awhile back. Interesting stuff.

3D printing is now adding value to manufacturers at all steps along the business value chain. Come find out how at a talk by John Jaddou at next month's Embedded Systems Conference in Minneapolis.
These new 3D-printing technologies and printers include some that are truly boundary-breaking: a sophisticated new sub-$10,000, 10-plus materials bioprinter, the first industrial-strength silicone 3D-printing service, and a clever twist on 3D printing and thermoforming for making high-quality realistic models.
A team of researchers at Stanford University and IBM Research have developed a catalyst that could quickly and inexpensively generate biodegradable plastics derived from renewable materials.
Using simulation to guide the drafting process can speed up the design and production of 3D-printed nanostructures, reduce errors, and even make it possible to scale up the structures. Oak Ridge National Laboratory has developed a model that does this.
These new plastics are all aimed at cars, electronics and electrical components, plus medical devices, medical tool sterilization, and cleaning.
