Living Hinges at the Next LevelWhen I was tipped off to the subject of this article, I didn't see the immediate benefit to HaD readers. The article talked about how researchers had made a 3D printer capable of making prints where some areas were highly rigid, and some areas were more flexible. I mean, that's good I guess. The idea swam in my head for a few hours until I realized that this could be applied to so many prints which need to be assembled post printing because they have moving parts. If you could print a flexible segment, you would print an entire build with the hinges as part of the design. Once I realized the importance, I bought a container of Tic Tacs so I could take a picture of the hinge to use in the article.
