The future of additive manufacturing: A 3-D multiple materials printing process

By Faye Oney / June 26, 2018

3-D printing typically involves only one material. Researchers have now developed a way to print multiple materials in one process. This method could eventually replace welding and other materials joining technologies.

Video of the week: 3D printing of bone-like scaffolds

By Eileen De Guire / December 1, 2011

Professor Susmita Bose uses 3D printing to make bone-like scaffolds from tricalcium phosphate. Credit: Washington State University; YouTube. We’ve written several posts recently on additive manufacturing of ceramics for heavy manufacturing (investment casting molds) and artistic designs (espresso coffee cups). New work by a Washington State University group further demonstrates the utility of rapid manufacturing…
