Metal 3D Printing in Germany: Exploring Wire and Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM)

In the recently published ‘Plasma Multiwire Technology with Alternating Wire Feed for Tailor-Made Material Properties in Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing,’ authors Uwe Reisgen, Rahul Sharma, and Lukas Oster (all from…

Understanding Functionally Graded Additive Manufacturing (FGAM) & Looking Beyond Its Limits

G.H. Loh and E. Pei explore the benefits of functionally graded additive manufacturing in ‘Building a conceptual understanding of Functionally Graded Additive Manufacturing (FGAM) and its limitations,’ exploring further 3D…

Researchers Customize 3D Printing for Functionally Graded Materials with Extrusion Screw

In the recently published ‘Development of 3D printer for functionally graded material using fused deposition modelling method,’ researchers discuss current obstacles in the fabrication of parts and prototypes as users…

Collaborative Research Team Develops Density-Graded Structure for Extrusion 3D Printing of Functionally Graded Materials

Plenty of research has been completed in regards to FDM (extrusion) 3D printing, such as how to improve part quality and how to reliably fabricate functionally graded materials (FGM). The…

3D & 4D DLP Printing with Functionally Graded Materials

In ‘Grayscale digital light processing 3D printing for highly functionally graded materials,’ Chinese researchers make it clear that 3D printing has a long way to go for producing excellence in…

A New 3D Printing Process CODE: 3D Printed Ceramics with Functionally Graded Materials

Several different methods have been developed for the 3D printing of ceramic materials, and one of those is CODE, or Ceramic On-Demand Extrusion, a recently developed extrusion-based process for the…

Fabrisonic Uses UAM 3D Printing Process to Create Functionally Graded Metal Materials

Functionally-graded materials (FGMs) differ from traditional composites in that two materials are joined with a graded interface in order to avoid a boundary between them. As FGMs are resistant to failure, they’re…

Functionally Graded Materials Are Key to Fast, Effective Multi-Material 3D Printing

A buzzword in the 3D printing industry lately has been “multi-material.” Desktop 3D printers have been released that are capable of printing with more than one material in one build,…

Friction Stir Additive Manufacturing Used for Functionally Graded Components

Over the past years we’ve seen a number of companies such as Sciaky, Optomec and Trumpf take traditional welding processes and turn them into 3D printing processes. Aeroprobe and the…
