3D Printer Ink Infused with Living Material

3D Printer Ink Infused with Living Material

A tree grows strong from years of generating its own food. Now imagine if products could be strengthened with the same living materials that provide nutrients to strengthen trees. This is the work of a team whose research lab is one of the first to infuse 3-D printer ink with living material.
