Multi-Colour 3D Printing With A Single Material


Drawing inspiration from colour-changing chameleons, a novel method for multi-colour 3D printing has been developed!

Researchers from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology have made it possible to print multi-colours using a single ink by changing the strength of UV light.

The findings of this research have been published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) and outlined in a study titled “Direct-ink-write cross-linkable bottlebrush block copolymers for on-the-fly control of structural color”.
