LLNL discovers new piece of two-photon lithography by turning it on its head

Improving the delicate process of 3D printing features smaller than the width of a human hair has, as you can imagine, many parameters to consider. To widen the applications of the method, new materials have to be created. And increasing the size of parts can come at a cost to time. At Lawrence Livermore National […]

LLNL stainless steel 3D printing “better than traditional manufacturing”

In a recent study led by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), scientists have discovered a way of making stainless steel two to three times stronger than usual. The method takes advantage of the unique grain structure of stainless steel parts when 3D printed using powder bed fusion (PBF) technology. Though the goal of the research was […]
