New study from World Patent Information offers an open-source algorithm

3-D printing is a disruptive technology set to unshackle innovation while slashing consumer prices. That is- if patent trolls are kept at bay. A patent troll is a company that attempts to enforce patent rights far beyond their patent's actual value or contribution to the prior art.

This new study provides an open-source algorithm to enable innovation for 3-D printing materials as it prevents patent trolls from restricting the use of any 3-D printing materials in the future: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0172219015000769
