Manufacturing—Layering on the Strength

A team, including Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and University of Tennessee researchers, demonstrated a novel 3-D printing approach called Z-pinning that can increase the material’s strength and toughness by more than three and a half times compared to conventional additive manufacturing processes. They demonstrated Z-pinning with polylactic acid, or PLA, and carbon fiber-reinforced PLA

3D Print Ceramics, Clay, Cookie Dough – or Solid Rocket Fuel

It”s now possible to 3D print extremely viscous materials, with the consistency of clay or cookie dough with fine precision, thanks to work done at Purdue University. This development may soon allow the creation of customized ceramics, solid rockets, pharmaceuticals, biomedical implants, foodstuffs, and more. “It’s very exciting that we can print materials with consistencies
