· Parts can be printed as continuous spatial extrusions
· Process allows for more intricate, complex, and intertwined geometry
· Process utilizes a relationship between materials to avoid the constraints of gravity during fabrication and allows faster spatial printing
· Can be enabled in both desktop manufacturing and rapid production of large parts
· Reduces the complexity of the 3D printing process
