3D printing of metamaterials for structural applications

Additive manufacturing, or 3D metal printing, allows to build ultralight and resistant structures with geometries that are impossible to achieve using conventional machining and processing techniques, including complex structures named “lattice”. These are three-dimensional constructions, topologically ordered, formed by the

Printable Carbon-based conducting cables

IMDEA Materials has developed a method to produce highly conducting nanostructured fibres for use as lightweight conductors (see Fig. 1). On a mass basis, these conductors have superior electrical/thermal conductivity and higher ampacity (maximum current density) than most metals. Their
