3D Printed Glass Enables Next-Gen Sensing, Imaging and Photonics

For next generation photonics, sensing and imaging technologies, the ability to 3D print glass is critical to developing highly complex, freeform, or small-scale structures. Yet it has proven difficult to 3D print glass, which has a high melting point over 1400°C,...

New Technique for Multi-Material 3D Printing

A multi-layer, single material print sample from a new technique invented by researchers at Columbia University that uses selective laser sintering to print objects with multiple materials at the same time.  . Researchers at Columbia flipped the laser in SLS additive...

New Multi Material 3D Printing Combines Different Metals and Ceramics into Single Part

The Fraunhofer family of German research institutes is endlessly inventing novel methods for manufacturing and supplementary technologies. The latest, this time from the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems (IKTS), is a multi-material ink jetting...

Making AM work from the materials side

With over 130 years of experience in specialty alloys, it was no surprise when Carpenter Technology expressed an interest in additive manufacturing.  . At the time, the company’s in-depth knowledge of metal materials positioned it strategically to advance additive...
