Brookhaven scientists use kebab-like structures to advance FFF 3D printing

Researchers from the Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) have devised a method of better understanding the Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) 3D printing process.   Working with a team from Stony Brook University, the Brookhaven scientists developed a dual-scanning method, which enabled them to monitor material deposition during 3D printing in real-time. While testing their approach, […]

French researchers investigate inter-layer heat transfer and adhesion during FFF

A team of researchers from the University of Nantes have recently published a study investigating the heat transfer and adhesion between layers in FFF 3D printing. With the aim of understanding, modeling and actually quantifying the heat exchanges in the printing process, the researchers set out to find the optimal set of print parameters to […]
