CREATE

Image Credit: Oakridgelab Design for Additive Manufacturing (DFAM) When designing for 3D-printing (AM), it is important but also difficult to free the mind from ordinary construction constraints (freedom of design) in order to create new improved designs that utilizes the advantages of the new construction method. When producing the digital component, one method is to […]

3D-PRINT

Image Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech 3D-printing system 3D-printing in metals is made either by having a flat powder bed and locally melt the material with a laser or electron beam, or by depositing powder- or wire material and locally melt the added material with a laser or electric arc. In this project, powder bed Selective laser melting […]

TEST

Image Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech For additive manufactured components the material differs depending on thickness of parts, printing strategy and design for 3D-printing. Due to the material complexity of 3D-printed components, conventional test methods might be misleading. Therefore adapted test methods needs to be applied in order to test and verify functionality for each type of component. […]
