• Voxel8, a company founded and run by several Harvard and MIT Professors, unveiled a developer kit for a 3D electronic-device printer shipping out in late 2015.
  • With the kit, engineers and designers will be able to print drones, phones, and (RC) automobiles, all in one piece, with electronics built in. The printer uses a modular design to print both circuitry and plastic parts. One printer head extrudes PLA plastic, building the bulk of the object, while another head prints out circuitry using super-conductive ink.
  • In the future Voxel8 plans to expand the printer’s capabilities, developing new “inks” that can print resistors, sensors, and even lithium ion battery cells.
