Water bottles, other recycled 3D printing materials could avoid military supply snags
Soldiers on the battlefield or at remote bases often have to wait weeks for vital replacement parts. Now scientists report they have found a way to fabricate many of these parts within hours under combat conditions using water bottles, cardboard and other recyclable materials found on base as starting materials for 3D printing. The researchers will present their results today at the 256th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society.
