Next Generation of 3D Materials
Greg M. Jung   7/26/2014 4:15:24 PM
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.
