A versatile, new additive manufacturing technique based on electrophoretic deposition of colloids onto light-patterned photoelectrodes is demonstrated. Particles to be deposited move via electrophoresis and adhere to the illuminated regions of the electrode. This process is repeated with different materials and illumination patterns to fabricate arbitrarily patterned 3D multimaterial composites.
