Rigid plastic materials are what most people think of when it comes to 3D printing. Soft materials, for the most part, continue to undergo processing using traditional manufacturing methods, like molding and casting. However, numerous soft materials are also well-suited for 3D printing, and the full potential for 3D printing of soft materials is largely untapped. An overview of the future possibilities for 3D printing with soft materials will be discussed, along with important basic material parameters. A review of selected technologies that enables these new materials will be presented, including the Discov3ry extruder and the Discov3ry Complete from Structur3D Printing.
