Bio-Inspired Toughening of Composites in 3D-Printing

Natural materials achieve exceptional mechanical properties by relying on hierarchically structuring their internal architecture. In several marine species, layers of stiff and hard inorganic material are separated by thin compliant organic layers, giving their skeleton both stiffness and toughness....
