Browse innovative developments in materials and manufacturing that significantly impact military, medical devices, automotive, and industrial manufacturing. Advances in plastics, metals, and composites are transforming 3D printing and rapid prototyping.
Just because your 3D printer has a high resolution doesn’t mean your parts will be accurate or precise. Understanding material options and how to optimize the part-to-print workflow is essential to get the most value out of 3D printing.
Car engines, laptop computers, cellphones, and refrigerators all heat up with overuse. That heat can be captured and turned into energy using a method that produces electricity from heat. The technology uses a silicon chip, also known as a “device,” that converts more thermal radiation into...
