In the last several years, 3D printing with plastics has advanced rapidly. Now, a team of researchers have shown that it may soon be as easy and practical to use metals with 3D printing. Led by Jan Schroers, Yale professor of mechanical engineering & materials science, the research team […]
Imagine if we could print BMG (Bulk Metal Glass) as easily as we do plastics?
The team, which also includes researchers from the company Desktop Metal Inc., and MIT, has shown that BMGs can be used in 3D printing to generate solid, high-strength metal components under ambient conditions similar to those in thermoplastic 3D printing.
