December 17, 2018--Researchers at Columbia University used a technique with voxel printing to create digital wood - a highly complex material for 3DP printing because of its combination of internal grains and external color textures. The technique is described in an article published in 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing, a peer-reviewed journal from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers. Click here to read the full-text article free on the 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing website through January 17, 2019.

In "Digital Wood: 3D Internal Color Texture Mapping," coauthors Fabian Stute, Joni Mici, Lewis Chamberlain, and Hod Lipson, Columbia University, New York, NY describe the inability to copy 3D objects with complex internal textures as a gap in the current 3D printing field. The researchers used destructive tomographic imaging to obtain images of a wood sample at very thin images and then feed the stack of images to a voxel-capable 3D printer. The authors also discuss less invasive and destructive methods that can be used to image the interior of materials with complex internal textures.
