Researchers from the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering and FSU Department of Scientific Computing have developed a new technique for 3D printing that could produce much stronger materials that could be used in a variety of applications.

 .

In a paper published in the journal Additive Manufacturing, researchers showed the possibility of using magnetic fields near a 3D printer to change the alignment of fibers inside an object as it was being printed. This tweak in the mechanical properties of the material could greatly improve its overall quality and strength. “3D-printed materials are not strong on their own because they’re just plastic layers sitting on top of each other,” said Madhuparna Roy, a former doctoral student and the […]
