Process developed to strengthen materials from 3-D printers

The strength of 3-D-printed products could be improved through a technique developed by University of Tennessee and Oak Ridge National Laboratory scientists. The process, called fused deposition modeling (FDM), uses UV irradiation, which could strengthen bonds of 3-D-printed materials to withstand 200% more transverse stress. FDM is a popular technique in the manufacturing industry and … Continue reading Process developed to strengthen materials from 3-D printers
