What are 3D printed electronics?

After nearly three decades of cutting-edge innovation, 3D printing technology is evolving from plastics-and metals-based additive manufacturing processes to the next logical step: multi-material 3D printing and the ability to incorporate functional electronic elements into print jobs.

This next-generation of 3D printing offers the promise of new ways to make devices that are smart and connected for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The breakthrough is achieved by the simultaneous use of electronically conductive and isolating materials within one print process. Today, the technology makes it possible to produce multi-layer 3D printed electronics – such as functioning circuit boards, non-planar circuits, sensors, antennas and other elements. Read more
