Comparing Surface Finish and Post-Processing Methods for SLM 3D Printed Parts

It’s not easy to produce parts that contain internal cooling channels using traditional manufacturing methods, which makes 3D printing an attractive option for easy, precise integration of these channels –…

Recycling in Additive Manufacturing: Coming Full Circle with End-of-Life Glass Fiber Reinforced Composites

In the recently published ‘Remanufacturing of end-of-life glass-fiber reinforced composites via UV-assisted 3D printing,’ authors Andrea Mantelli, Marinella Levi, Stefano Turri, and Raffaella Suriano, from Politecnico di Milano, opened a…

Researchers Delve Further Into 3D Printing Mechanical Metamaterials

Researchers from the Netherlands and Italy have recently published their findings on complex 3D printing research in Multi-material 3D printed mechanical metamaterials: Rational design of elastic properties through spatial distribution…

Researchers Use Single Mode 1 kW Fiber Laser to 3D Print Pure Copper Powder

As of right now, selective laser melting (SLM. DMLS, Powder Bed Fusion) is suitable mainly for 3D printing copper alloys. But it would be better to print pure copper (Cu),…

Composites Startup Introduces Continuous Fiber Manufacturing Technology for 3D Printing High Performance Parts

In 2016, the award-winning Atropos 3D printing research project on 3D printing thermosetting continuous fiber composite materials was born out of a collaboration between KUKA, Owens Corning, and +Lab, which is…

3D Printing News Briefs: May 15, 2018

There are several new launches to cover in today’s 3D Printing News Briefs, starting with a new sustainable 3D printing steel powder project. Jabil has begun its digital future initiative,…

TU Delft Examines Innovative 3D Printable Metamaterials with Applications in Soft Robotics

A group of materials scientists from the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) have been working on a project that introduces the interesting concept of 3D printable “action-at-a-distance” metamaterials, which…

3D Printing and Biomimetic Research Combine to Create Lightweight Architecture Prototype: Trabeculae Pavilion

A little over a year ago, Italian artist Francesco Pacelli, once an academic researcher and educator with Politecnico di Milano‘s LAB+ 3D printing lab, was testing the limitations and abilities of…

Thermosetting Composite Materials: Atropos Creates New Relationship Between 3D Printing & Robotics

Most of us are aware, if only vaguely, of the story of the Three Fates in Greek mythology. Also known as the moirai, the three goddesses (and sisters) played quite…
