Amy Pullan, The University of Sheffield A 'less is more' approach has enabled UK engineers to make 3D printed parts lighter and stronger, using methods that will also make 3D printing faster and more economical. The technique uses a cutting edge process known as high speed sintering (HSS). Unlike commercial 3D printers that use lasers, HSS marks the shape of the part onto powdered plastic using heat-sensitive ink, which is then activated by an infra-red lamp to melt the powder layer by...

The History of 3D Printing
2013-09-20 10:14:26

Three-dimensional printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is the process of using additives to form solid 3D objects of virtually any shape from a digital model. This is achieved using specially formulated additives, such as plastics, that are formed into successive layers of material typically laid down on a platform in different shapes. 3D printing is uniquely distinct from a more traditional 3D sculpting technique, which relies on the removal of layers (subtractive manufacturing)...
