The Virtual Foundry develops custom materials for additive manufacturing

Until recently, engineers and designers were limited in the materials they could use for additive manufacturing. That’s because the catalogs of the major 3D printer manufacturers tend to focus on the most popular, high-volume materials. These creators now have another option: Custom metal, glass and ceramic materials from The Virtual Foundry, specially formulated to help …
