Additive manufacturing, which is considered as the next industrial revolution, enables the fabrication of objects and devices through printing processes, and is considered as part of the next industrial revolution. I already has a great impact on a variety of fields, for example in the automotive, electronics, medical, food and aerospace industries. Our research is focused on the development and investigation of new materials tailored for various printing technologies, aimed at industrial applications. Recent progress will be presented, including: Conductive materials for printed electronics, stretchable materials for soft robotics, 3D printing based on wood waste, new nanoparticles for printing in water, self-healing and 4D structures.
