Prevent defects in metal 3D-printed parts

Posted on Updated on

Prevent defects in metal 3D-printed parts. Using this technology could have been benefited to build high rise buildings in San Francisco California.

According to Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) researchers, “High-speed images of a common laser-based metal 3D printing process, coupled with newly updated computer models, have revealed the mechanisms behind material redistribution, a phenomenon that leads to defects in printed metal parts”.

3D printed silicone models

Posted on Updated on

3D printed silicone models. According to WACKER and engineer Hannah Riedle from the University of Erlangen, “the Munich-based chemical group, is currently expanding its ACEO 3D printing services for silicone rubber and announced the opening of a US-based printing lab later this year. The facility, which will be located at WACKER’s R&D center for silicone’s in Ann Arbor (MI), is the company’s first regional 3D printing lab outside of Germany.
We can print 3D silicone models based on medical image data that we obtain from magnetic resonance imaging or computed tomography”.
