3D printing breakthrough creates tiny metal structures

3D printing breakthrough creates tiny metal structures | Metal additive manufacturing | Scoop.it
European researchers have come up with a method to 3D print in metal using tiny drops of copper and gold with the help of a laser. The ability to print more structures that better conduct heat and electricity could lead to entirely new devices and components being created.

NASA 3-D Prints First Full-Scale Copper Rocket Engine Part

NASA 3-D Prints First Full-Scale Copper Rocket Engine Part | Metal additive manufacturing | Scoop.it

“On the inside of the paper-edge-thin copper liner wall, temperatures soar to over 5,000 degrees Fahrenheit, and we have to keep it from melting by recirculating gases cooled to less than 100 degrees above absolute zero on the other side of the wall,” said Chris Singer, director of the Engineering Directorate at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, where the copper rocket engine liner was manufactured. “To circulate the gas, the combustion chamber liner has more than 200 intricate channels built between the inner and outer liner wall. Making these tiny passages with complex internal geometries challenged our additive manufacturing team.”

Report charts a research path for improving “printed” metal parts

Report charts a research path for improving “printed” metal parts | Metal additive manufacturing | Scoop.it
Additive manufacturing has been called a game changer. But new games require new instructions, and the manuals for a growing assortment of methods for building parts and products layer-by-layer, collectively known as "3D printing", still are works in progress. Manufacturing researchers at NIST have scoped out the missing sections in current guidelines for powder bed fusion, the chief method for "printing" metal parts.

3D Printed Aerodynamic Handlebars Help Sir Bradley Wiggins to Break the World Hour Record

3D Printed Aerodynamic Handlebars Help Sir Bradley Wiggins to Break the World Hour Record | Metal additive manufacturing | Scoop.it
On Sunday 7th June 2015, Sir Bradley Wiggins broke the World Hour Record with the help of 3D printed super lightweight and aerodynamic handlebars developed at the University of Sheffield’s Mercury Centre, in conjunction with Pinarello.
Multistation's insight:

The designers used an Arcam Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing machine (developped by our partner) in order to make slight modifications quickly, without having to build new moulds to fabricate individual pieces. This saved time and allowed the designers to thoroughly test the parts and make the necessary adjustments to the handlebars prior to the world record attempt.
