New natural hydrogel inks for digital light processing 3D printing

Researchers at Politecnico di Torino, BRIN in Indonesia, the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) and University of Cagliari have recently introduced new composite hydrogel inks based on natural and environment friendly materials, which could be used to 3D print objects. These hydrogels, presented in a paper published in Sustainable Materials and Technologies, are based on acrylated-carboxymethyl cellulose (mCMC).
