The development of new materials and their compositional and microstructural optimization are essential in regard to next-generation technologies such as clean energy and environmental sustainability. However, materials discovery and optimization have been

Bearing area curve based partitioning for the verification of theoretical supplemental geometry on additively manufactured lattice structures

April 25, 2023
Maxwell R. Praniewicz, Jason Fox, Lucas Fournet-Fayard, Charles Cayron, Imade Koutiri, Anne-Francoise Obaton
The geometrical qualification of additively manufactured lattice structures has largely focused on the measurement of strut diameter, form variations, and surface texture. However, the exterior surfaces of the lattice structure, defined through theoretical

Synergistic Fire Resistance of Nanobrick-wall Coated 3D Printed Photopolymer Lattices

March 16, 2023
Thomas Kolibaba, Callie Higgins, Zack Buck, Dash Weeks, Jason Killgore
Photopolymer additive manufacturing has become the subject of widespread interest in recent years due to its capacity to enable fabrication of difficult geometries that are impossible to build with traditional modes of manufacturing. The flammability of

Solidification modes during additive manufacturing of steel revealed by high-speed X-ray diffraction

March 1, 2023
Hans-Henrik Konig, Niklas Hollander Pettersson, A Durga, Steven Van Petegem, Daniel Grolimund, Qilin Guo, Chihpin Chuang, lianyi Chen, Christos Oikonomou, Fan Zhang, Greta Lindwall
Solidification during fusion-based additive manufacturing (AM) is characterized by high solidification velocities and high thermal gradients, two factors that control the solidification mode of AM metals and alloys. Using two synchrotron-based, in situ

Sustainable Additive Manufacturing of Polyelectrolyte Photopolymer Complexes

January 29, 2023
Thomas Kolibaba, Jason Killgore, Callie Higgins
Polyelectrolyte complexes (PECs), assemblies of oppositely charged polymers with powerful properties and wide-ranging applications, are currently not melt-processable via any conventional means and have been limited commercially to applications only as

Characterizing light engine uniformity and its influence on LCD-based vat photopolymerization printing

December 27, 2022
Benjamin Caplins, Callie Higgins, Thomas Kolibaba, Uwe Arp, C Cameron Miller, Dianne L. Poster, Clarence Zarobila, Yuqin Zong, Jason Killgore
Vat photopolymerization (VP) is a rapidly growing category of additive manufacturing. As VP methods mature the expectation is that the quality of printed parts will be highly reproducible. At present, detailed characterization of the light engines used in


November 11, 2022
Fahad Milaat, Paul Witherell, Martin Hardwick, Ho Yeung, Vincenzo Ferrero, Laetitia Monnier, Matthew Brown
Powder bed fusion (PBF) is an additive manufacturing (AM) technology that uses powerful beams to fuse powder material into layers of scanned patterns, thus producing parts with great geometric complexity. For PBF, process parameters, environmental control

Modes of laser melting in additive manufacturing of metals

October 20, 2022
Cang Zhao, Bo Shi, Shuailei Chen, Tao Sun, Brian Simonds, Anthony Rollett
In the laser powder bed fusion additive manufacturing of metals, extreme thermal conditions create many highly dynamic physical phenomena, such as vaporization and recoil, Marangoni convection, and protrusion and keyhole instability. Collectively, however

STEP-NC Process Planning for Powder Bed Fusion Additive Manufacturing

October 20, 2022
Fahad Milaat, Paul Witherell, Martin Hardwick, Ho Yeung, Vincenzo Ferrero, Laetitia Monnier, Matthew Brown
Powder bed fusion (PBF) is an additive manufacturing (AM) technology that uses high-power beams to fuse powder material into layers of scanned patterns, thus producing parts with great geometric complexity. For PBF, the selection of appropriate process

Research and Application of Machine Learning for Additive Manufacturing

October 1, 2022
Paul Witherell, Yan Lu, Ying Liu, David W. Rosen, Timothy Simpson, Charlie Wang
Additive manufacturing (AM) is poised to bring a revolution due to its unique production paradigm. It offers the prospect of mass customization, flexible production, on-demand and decentralized manufacturing. However, a number of challenges stem from not

The Strategy for American Leadership in High-Consequence Additive Manufacturing

September 9, 2022
Mark Benedict, Shawn P. Moylan, Souhail Al-Abed, Cindy Ashforth, Y. Kevin Chou, Matthew Di Prima, Alaa Elwany, Michael Gorelik, Astrid Lewis, Todd Luxton, Blake Marshall, William Mullins, Linda Sapochak, Richard Russell, James A. Warren, Douglas Wells
Over the past decade, a consistent theme in enhancing U.S. global competitiveness has been the need for U.S. leadership in critical advanced manufacturing technologies. Additive manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D Printing, has been among those critical

Simulated stress mitigation strategies in embedded 3D bioprinting

August 30, 2022
Leanne Friedrich, Ross Gunther, Jonathan Seppala
Extrusion-based 3D bioprinting is a powerful tool for fabricating complex cell-laden constructs. Embedded Ink Writing (EIW) is an extrusion-based printing technique wherein a nozzle embedded into a support bath writes continuous filaments. Because it

X-ray computed tomography analysis of pore deformation in IN718 made with directed energy deposition via in-situ tensile testing
