A Defect-resistant Superalloy for 3D Printing

A Defect-resistant Superalloy for 3D Printing

In recent years, it has become possible to use laser beams and electron beams to "print" engineering objects that have complex shapes that could not be achieved by conventional manufacturing routes. The additive manufacturing process, known widely as 3D printing, for metallic materials involves melting and fusing fine-scale powder particles — each about ten times finer than a grain of local beach sand — in sub-millimeter-scale "pools" created by focusing a laser or electron beam on the material.

Ingredients to Produce Food by 3D Printing

Ingredients to Produce Food by 3D Printing

It is already possible to produce food with a 3D printer, potentially delivering products that suit consumer preferences regarding taste, texture, cost, convenience, and nutrition. In the near future, it will be possible to produce food with personalized shapes, textures, flavors, and colors considered attractive and healthy for children and the elderly, for example.

3D printing of buildings and vehicles

3D printing of buildings and vehicles

3D printing, or additive manufacturing, is the construction of a three-dimensional object from a CAD model or a digital 3D model. 3D printing is currently useful from sizes a few centimetres across to the size of buildings. Mostly, it lacks the definition for smaller items and the strength for larger ones.
