The Boston Globe’s Michael Farrell reported on new work by CSAIL researchers that could transform the 3D printing field.
 
“The MIT researchers created a new programming language to streamline the process so it will be easier to print objects with multiple materials, so they can be squishy and flexible at one place, firm at another, or reflect light and conform to touch. Right now, making objects like that is an arduous and technically challenging task and beyond the ability of off-the-shelf 3D printing software,” wrote Farrell.
