Engineers make 3D printed plastic repair itself in 1 hour using just light in Aus

Engineers at UNSW Sydney demonstrated a way to help 3D printed plastic heal itself at room temperature using only lights. It can be done by shining standard LED lights on the printed plastic for around one hour which causes a chemical reaction and fusion of the two broken pieces, the engineers said. The process makes the repaired plastic even stronger..
