Army researchers conduct case studies to optimize the processing parameters for different material depositions using a customized 3-D printer. Researchers like Ricardo Rodriguez hope to someday print large items like a Soldier's helmet with sensing capabilities embedded in hybrid materials, a potential solution they expect to optimize Soldier capabilities while reducing weight.
