Testing the Mechanical Properties of FDM 3D Printed Shape Memory Polymers

University of Alberta thesis student Danesh Zonoobi takes fabrication potential to the next level, exploring the world of 4D in ‘Mechanical Properties of Extrusion-Based Additive Manufacturing of Shape Memory Polymers.’…

Interview with Formalloy’s Melanie Lang on Directed Energy Deposition

When I met Melanie Lang at RAPID a lot of the buzz on the show floor was directed at her startup Formalloy. Formalloy has developed a metal deposition head that…

At Every Unique Voxel a Unique Design and Material Best Suited for That Point and Application.

A voxel is a 3D pixel. A unit of 3D dimensional space, a voxel can be a virtually demarcated space in a 3D file or it could be somewhere on…

Interview With Kevin Eckes of Selective Powder Deposition Firm Aerosint

Most new startups in 3D printing are rather boring. There’s lots of whizzbang but very little fundamental innovation. Most of them are looking to score not looking to improve 3D…

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…

Metal 3D Printing in the Aerospace Industry — A Few Questions For: Formalloy

Last month, the agenda was announced for next week’s Inside 3D Printing San Diego event, hosted by global events producer Rising Media. It will be held at the San Diego…

Open House: Additive Manufacturing Evolution is On Track at BeAM Machines Inc.

We’ve been eagerly following the progress of BeAM Machines SAS, founded in France, since 2015. This winter, the company, which specializes in Directed Energy Deposition (DED) technology, made a successful jump…

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…
