3D Printing and Electronics

While 3D printing (or additive manufacturing) has been used for product prototyping purposes, new developments from Disney Research could see electronics directly integrated into products as they are printed.

In the paper “Printed Optics: 3D Printing of Embedded Optical Elements for Interactive Devices”, the researchers from Disney Research looked at ways in which sensing, display and illumination elements can be directly embedded in the casing or structure of a device.
