“Metamaterials Focus to 3D Printing Insoles Production”, Presented by Ignacio Garcia, Recreus

Metamaterials Focus to 3D Printing Insoles Production”, Presented by Ignacio Garcia. An explanation how to create 3d printing parts, insoles, prosthetics etc, with different hardness and stiffness varying the infill pattern, using the same material, FILAFLEX. How you can do it with a new software calls GENSOLE. Spreading the possibilities of FDM printers.

“3D-Printing of Supramolecular Materials”, Presented by Tristan Mes, SupraPolix BV

3D-Printing of Supramolecular Materials”, Presented by Tristan Mes, SupraPolix BV. Supramolecular polymers, based on hydrogen bonding are eminently suitable for FDM 3D-printing. The thermo-reversible nature of hydrogen bonding favors the interplay between the intrinsic processability and the mechanical properties of the polymer and is therefore lowering its printing-temperature while retaining its mechanical performance.
