Their patent describes a system for depositing their proprietary filament mixtures, which can be conductive, insulating, resistive, p-type semiconducting, n-type semiconducting, or capacitive. This invention was developed as part of a series of research and development projects funded by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s Phase I, Phase II, and Phase III SBIRs/STTRs (NASA). Morningbird was previously credited with being the first to create a functional transistor using an FDM 3D printer.
“Without a doubt this is an important step forward in the evolution of additive manufacturing. The ability to produce complex devices with electronic function is groundbreaking. Our team has worked tirelessly to bring this technology into reality and we look forward to launching our product to the public very soon.”– Dr. Chance M. Glenn, Sr., President & CEO, Morningbird Media Corporation
