3D printing enables one to rapidly design and fabricate materials in arbitrary shapes on demand. I will introduce the fundamental principles that underpin 3D printing methods pioneered by our group. I will then describe the design, composition, and rheological properties of functional, structural and biological inks that we have developed, which are vastly expanding the capabilities of 3D printing. Finally, I will highlight several examples from our recent work, including the fabrication and characterization of colloidal foams, shape-shifting architectures, and soft functional devices.
