FluidForm is a start-up that is defining the future of additive manufacturing. With its commitment to expanding the capability of 3D printing, FluidForm is revolutionizing the field of additive manufacturing by radically expanding the types and combinations of materials that can be 3D printed.
For decades, 3D printing has been limited to a select number of metals, ceramics and plastics that solidify through transient heating or photo-crosslinking. Soft materials such as silicones, and those that take longer to solidify or flow under the effect of gravity, such as epoxies, are more challenging and cannot be effectively 3D printed.
FluidForm is overcoming these challenges with its patented Freeform Reversible Embedding of Suspended Hydrogels (FRESH™). This innovative 3D printing technology provides access to new materials, new design strategies and new applications.
