3D Printed Parts Strengthened with Carbon Nanotube

A Texas Tech University doctoral candidate was brainstorming research ideas at Texas Tech in August 2013 when he came across a topic that would influence his tenure as a Red Raider. He currently is researching techniques to improve the strength of 3D printed parts by incorporating carbon nanotubes in the plastic printer filaments and by exposing printed parts to microwave energy.

3DXTech’s Carbon Nanotube 3D Printer Filament is Here

The materials market for 3D printing is turning into a hotbed for innovation. More than likely the material science behind 3D printing will be just as, if not more important than the 3D printing technology itself. There are 3dx-1already dozens of different types of filament that one can print with. There are the pure plastics like ABS and PLA, but then there are plastics infused with other materials, that give prints unique looks and feels.
