3D Printing Soft Matter Leads to New Discipline in Mechanical Engineering

A University of Florida researcher exploring different techniques for 3-D printing has invented a method for manufacturing materials as soft as a cloud in a way never before possible.

The discovery by assistant professor Tommy Angelini turns traditional engineering on its head and opens the door to a brand-new discipline in mechanical engineering, said David Hahn, chair of UF’s department of mechanical and aerospace engineering.
