Printing the future: Three-dimensional precision
3D printers are not only revolutionising today's manufacturing and production processes, they have also long since found their way into our everyday lives. This innovative manufacturing technology is used to produce components for space technology as well as entire houses. The Institute of Materials Science and Technology at TU Wien is at the forefront of high-precision 3D printing and research into new base materials, ranging from high-performance plastics and ceramics to artificial ivory and 3D-printed living cells.

In the fourth presentation of the Science Corner, entitled Printing the future: Three-dimensional precision, visitors will discover innovative 3D-printed materials and gain exclusive insights into current research projects.
