Color-Changing 3D Printables Help Reduce Waste
Once objects are 3D printed, they’re usually final - making a change will require a reprint. Now, researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) introduce "ColorMod," a method for repeatedly changing the colors of 3D printed objects, after fabrication. Using a special 3D printable ink that changes color when exposed to ultraviolet light, the team can adjust the color of an object in just over 20 minutes.
