High-throughput 3D printer could revolutionize manufacturing

January 30, 2020
In work supported by the Center for Bio-Inspired Energy Science, CBES senior investigator Chad Mirkin and colleagues at Northwestern University developed a 3D printer that can print about half a yard in an hour — a record throughput for 3D printing. The technology, called high-area rapid printing (HARP), was described in an October 2019 publication in Science and was featured in a Big Ten Network story and video published Jan. 29.
