Rahul’s paper on freeform polymer precipitation (FPP) is published. We developed a method to 3D print freeform structures of thermoplastics in microparticulate gels. The microparticulate gels provided dual functions – physical support and environment for immersion precipitation – that offered support-free 3D-patterning of thermoplastics inks. Congratulations, Rahul!
