A team from UNSW Sydney has developed a way to 3D print strong, high-conducting solid polymer electrolytes into custom shapes.

3D printing and robotics are changing construction

3D printing processes and building materials can create more sustainable construction in environments as diverse as outback Australia and outer space.
