The alloy used has to have a relatively low melting point (of less than 300°C). But subject to this constraint, metals have been successfully heated and extruded to form objects in layers that were just under a millimetre thick. For example, researchers at Cranfield University have developed ‘wire and arc additive manufacturing’ (WAAM). 2 m spar section of an aircraft wing. com. While Cranfield are hoping to commercialize WAAM in the future, some industrial metal extrusion processes have already come to market.

It is therefore hardly surprising that additive manufacturing enthusiasts have for some years been experimenting with the 3D printing of food. For example, in Spain a research group called Robots in Gastronomy have developed a 3D printer called FoodForm that can extrude edible build materials onto any surface, including a hot grill or frying pan, or a chilled anti-griddle. Experimenting with the FoodForm, Robots in Gastronomy have already managed to 3D print using bread, cake and cookie doughs, hazelnut and chocolate creams, honey, cheese, ice cream, cheesecake, meringue, various frostings, pasta, eggs, pâté and purees.

The result is a piece of desktop hardware that can 3D print fiber reinforced nylon objects that are stiffer than aluminium. The creation of highly specialist plastic composite 3D printing materials is likely to become a major area of development. Signalling the direction of travel, in 2014 a company called 3DXTech launched two carbon nanotube reinforced filaments called 3DXNano ESD ABS and 3DXNano ESD PETG. These are composites of carbon nanotubes mixed with the thermoplastics ABS or PETG, and allow low-cost 3D printers to fabricate parts that offer electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection.
