Electrochemical Additive Manufacturing (ECAM) is a new method of low-cost metal fabrication in development at Imperial College London (ICL). Expanding on a presentation of the technique from Advanced Materials Technologies in August 2017, the ICL team has recently published a paper on ECAM’s potential for 4D printing. Dr. Billy Wu is one of the three corresponding authors of the new ECAM article for Scientific Reports . In his tenure as Senior Lecturer in Energy and Manufacturing at the ICL Dyson School of Design Engineering, Dr. Wu also co-leads the university’s Additive Manufacturing Network (AMN). 3D Printing Industry speaks to Dr. Wu to learn more the ICL’s team’s vision for self-assembling metal.
