The 3D Printing Process Could be Revolutionized by Malleable Filament

With maker culture in full swing, many are looking for ways to help enhance the 3d printing process, which this malleable filament does in an innovative way.

Created by Adam Beane Industries, the sculptable filament works by being incorporated into 3D printers and used just like regular filament. However, after the process has been finished, the filament is capable of being sculpted, shaped and customized as a way to help incorporate a sense of hand-craftsmanship.

3D-printed goods often look 3D-printed because of the visible print lines, which some interpret as unsightly. The incorporation of malleable filament into the 3D printing process could help to revolutionize the manufacturing industry by being able to create goods that can be finished to perfection.
