© OSA 2018 3D-printing is changing the way research is being conducted. By enabling the ready demonstration of prototype devices and instruments, 3D printing accelerates the adaptation of IoT technologies going beyond simple, latency-enhancing sensors. Prototyping and custom packaging is easier, rapid and increasingly low cost, circumventing traditional approaches, disrupting manufacture. Direct 3D printing of transmission and optical technologies such as optical fibres and waveguides is revolutionising research, enabling accessible and affordable capability to a much wider audience space.
