Massachusetts-based startup Forust created a technology to 3D print wood components in high-resolution at high-volume. According to their website the Forust process combines two wood industry byproducts - sawdust and lignin - to produce isotropic, high-strength, sustainable wood parts. “Unlike particle board or laminate, Forust produces 3D printed, digitally rematerialized wood, with grain that flows across the entire part and can be sanded and refinished. The Forust process has the ability to mimic almost any wood grain, from Ash to Zebrano, Ebony to Mahogany.”
