+ - National Lab Working to Mix Metals and Polymers for 3D Printing->

Submitted by Lucas123
Lucas123 (935744) writes "Scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Lab are trying to expand 3D printing to include mixed materials at the same time, such as polymers and metals. With those advances, a company could build, for example, body armor for soldiers that are stronger and lighter. If their work pans out, they’ll create materials that have properties that simply don’t exist today."
