MIT Self-Assembly Lab's Rapid Liquid Printing Tech Prints Furniture in Minutes

***

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed a revolutionary new form of 3D printing that can produce large objects such as chairs in a fraction of the time of regular printers. The Self-Assembly Lab worked with US furniture company Steelcase to develop the process, known as Rapid Liquid Printing, which involves extruding material from a computer-controlled nozzle into gel. This allows them to print large-scale structures very quickly, creating a range of possibilities for furniture production.
