Utilizing the freedom of shape and flexibility of 3D printing techniques combined with the technologies from flexible electronics a new manufacturing paradigm is being developed. TNO is developing such manufacturing technologies towards industrial production of fully customized 3D printed structural electronics. This presentation will talk about the current efforts from TNO towards this realization and the future vision.
