Next Generation of 3D Materials

NO RATINGS
Thanks for the excellent discussion on the next generation of 3D printing materials.  I am very interested in watching the development of adding fiber-reinforcement to these 3D polymers since this will significantly increase material strength and performance.  As the article stated, creating new ultra-strong, next generation polymers will address a large pent-up demand in certain market segments.
