Unlocking Extraordinary Strength

Researchers from RMIT University, Australia, have developed a groundbreaking 3D printed material known as a "metamaterial," boasting exceptional strength-to-weight ratios. This innovation holds promise for various applications ranging from medical implants to aerospace engineering.

The metamaterial, crafted from a common titanium alloy, showcases a strength-to-weight ratio surpassing even the most advanced metal alloys utilized in aerospace industries. This exceptional property stems from its unique lattice structure, a design inspired by resilient natural formations observed in hollow-stemmed plants like Victoria water lilies and robust corals such as organ-pipe coral.
