Clearly advancing: Multiple teams develop technologies to 3-D print high-quality, microstructured glass

By April Gocha / May 4, 2017

Two new papers, one published in Nature and one in Advanced Materials, describe 3-D printing techniques that use silica nanoparticle inks—rather than molten glass itself—to to fabricate optically clear glass components with micrometer-scale resolution, a huge leap forward for the integration of glass materials into additive manufacturing.

Solid freeform fabrication of one-piece investment casting molds for airfoils

By Eileen De Guire / November 17, 2011

Integrally cored ceramic mold fabricated by ceramic stereolithography. The vertical cross-section on the left shows the core and shell parts. Five horizontal cross-sections of individual layers in the build-up are shown on the right. The mold is for investment casting of superalloy airfoils for gas turbine engines.
