Reducing High Porosity and Improving Sealing Properties in Extrusion-Based 3D Printing

Reducing High Porosity and Improving Sealing Properties in Extrusion-Based 3D Printing

While there’s been a lot of ongoing research into what causes structural defects (porosity) and other flaws in metal 3D printed parts, let’s not forget that 3D printed objects made with other kinds of materials can also suffer from issues. A small team of researchers from the Russian Academy of Sciences’ N.D. Zelinsky Institute of Organic […]

Brilliant Flash of Light Lets Scientists Study Structure of 3D Printing Material at Atomic Level to Reduce Defects

Additive manufacturing processes, while amazing and valuable, are not without their flaws, and lots of research has been conducted into how and why defects in 3D printing that can cause weakness in printed products, like micro cracking and spattering, occur. One industry that has long adopted additive manufacturing technology is aerospace, and Rolls Royce, one of […]

Researchers Use Sensors, Microphones, and Nanoparticles to Develop Three Methods to Combat 3D Printer Cyberattacks

When it comes to computers and other technology, hacking, by definition, can mean either to modify in a clever, skillful way, or to get around security with malicious intent. So while we love hearing about cool 3D printing hacks, we also know that there are people in the world who aim to hack 3D printers […]

Why is Metal 3D Printing Often Plagued By Porosity Issues? LLNL Researchers Fill in the Gaps

While many involved in 3D printing around the world still haven’t gotten over the excitement of discovering 3D printing with metal—and many still aspire to do so—the researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) are already (of course!) way ahead of us all, working on researching the process, techniques, and ultimately, helping all involved to […]
