Robotic 3D Printing Of Mycelium-Based Bio-Composites

Mycelium-based bio-composites are lightweight, renewable, and biodegradable and can turn bio-waste into high-end products. Current technology uses molding to form mycelium, limiting its geometric complexity and scale; it is also wasteful if molds aren't reused. A robotic 3D printing approach could be utilized to develop mycelium-based materials, eliminating the requirement for formwork. This reduces waste and allows the production of complicated forms that enable mycelium growth.
