Additive Manufacturing Technologies: Rapid Prototyping to Direct Digital Manufacturing deals with various aspects of joining materials to form parts. Additive Manufacturing (AM) is an automated technique for direct conversion of 3D CAD data into physical objects using a variety of approaches. Manufacturers have been using these technologies in order to reduce development cycle times and get their products to the market quicker, more cost effectively, and with added value due to the incorporation of customizable features. Realizing the potential of AM applications, a large number of processes have been developed allowing the use of various materials ranging from plastics to metals for product development. Authors Ian Gibson, David W. Rosen and Brent Stucker explain these issues, as well as: Providing a comprehensive overview of AM technologies plus descriptions of support technologies like software systems and post-processing approaches Discussing the wide variety of new and emerging applications like micro-scale AM, medical applications, direct write electronics and Direct Digital Manufacturing of end-use components Introducing systematic solutions for process selection and design for AM Additive Manufacturing Technologies: Rapid Prototyping to Direct Digital Manufacturing is the perfect book for researchers, students, practicing engineers, entrepreneurs, and manufacturing industry professionals interested in additive manufacturing.

Abstract null null Solid adsorbents have been actively developed for energy-efficient gas separations including carbon capture and air purification. However, conventional particulate adsorbents often show ineffective mass transfer and significant pressure drop in practical operations, leading to a limited overall performance. As a potential solution to these issues, the development of three-dimensionally (3D) structured adsorbents has been proposed. Herein, we report a novel approach to design 3...

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to the imminent collapse of medical supply chains across global economies at an unprecedented scale. Essential supplies such as personnel protective equipment (PPE), ventilator components, and face shields have witnessed a continuous rise in demand and eventually boost the role of 3D printing. Over the months following the spread of the pandemic, 3D printed alternatives of many medical devices were made more accessible to hospitals, mostly by community-sourced desig...

Abstract null null A novel finite element-based simulation method is proposed for fused deposition modeling in two dimensions. The method assumes full coupling between the mechanical and thermal response under the assumptions of infinitesimal deformation and finite temperature variation. To account for continuous temperature-induced changes in the geometry, new elements are deposited on the current configuration, while the governing equations are solved on a reference configuration generated bas...

Abstract null null Within the last years, digital light processing (DLP) became a viable solution for the manufacturing of end-use parts in various industries among other additive manufacturing (AM) processes. As the number of applications realized in a rapid manufacturing (RM) approach grows, it is necessary to understand the process economics better when moving from laboratory and prototyping applications into the cost-sensitive production scale. This paper presents a production-centered econo...

Abstract null null Mechanical metamaterials provide tailorable functionality based on a careful combination of base material and structural architecture. Truss-based metamaterials, e.g., exploit structural topology and beam geometry to achieve beneficial mechanical and physical properties from stiffness and wave dispersion to strength and toughness. While the focus to date has been primarily on static metamaterial properties or elastic wave motion, 3D-printed polymeric base materials naturally c...

Abstract null null In-depth understanding of corrosion behaviour is a key aspect regarding the application of additively manufactured parts. In this study, 316L stainless steel was manufactured under different scanning strategies using selective laser melting (SLM). Microstructure characterization and electrochemical tests in NaCl aqueous solution (3.5 wt%), including open circuit potential (OCP), potentiodynamic polarization, and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), were conducted to s...
