Researchers Compare Microstructure of As-Cast, Hot-Extruded, and 3D Printed Magnesium Alloy Samples

Alloys of the shiny gray chemical element magnesium (Mg) feature a high strength-to-weight ratio and a low density of about 1700 kg/m3, making them good options for technical applications in…

Germany: Testing Creep Properties in 3D Printed Single Crystal Ni-base Superalloys

German researchers explore creep properties in superalloys, detailing their findings in the recently published ‘Creep properties of single crystal Ni-base superalloys (SX): A comparison between conventionally cast and additive manufactured…

TU Delft Researchers Discuss Microstructural Optimization for 3D Printing Trabecular Bone

Trabecular bone, also known as spongy or cancellous bone, is one of two types of bone found in the human body. It is found at the end of long bones,…

Researchers Study the Microstructure of Laser Cladding

While metal additive manufacturing has plenty of benefits, it has its drawbacks as well. Two of those drawbacks are high production costs and often unpredictable failure of parts. Laser cladding…

Effect of Build Orientation on the Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of SLM 3D Printed Titanium

One of the challenges of 3D printing is the ability to get repeatable results, like good mechanical properties and identical microstructure, using different build orientations. A lot of research has…

LLNL Researchers Use Laser Beam Shaping to Enhance Properties During Metal 3D Printing

From bioprinting blood vessels and using 3D printing to control reactive materials to 3D printing nanoporous gold and researching metal 3D printing flaws, the scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory…

Microstructure of Powder Bed Fusion 316 L Stainless Steel: Colonies of Cells

A great deal of work is involved in optimizing materials for additive manufacturing. Porosity is a consistent problem in metal 3D printing, and scientists spend a lot of time studying…

Parameters of 3D Printed Tungsten Subject of New Study

One metal material that hasn’t been frequently 3D printed is tungsten. Tungsten, abbreviated as W, is a valuable material for its high corrosion resistance, which makes it ideal for equipment…

Student Uses Nanoscribe Technology to Investigate 3D Printed Microstructures for Optics in Thesis

German 3D printer manufacturer Nanoscribe specializes in 3D micro and nano printing, and its Photonic Professional GT 3D printer, which uses a two-photon polymerization process, was used in two life sciences…
