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.
