Vanderbilt University strikes gold on 3D printed defects

Defects in 3D printed parts can cause tremendous failures in a finished component. Luckily, new research from Vanderbilt University, Tennessee, has gleaned a new way of detecting faults. By introducing gold nanoparticles into the 3D printer material, researchers can now quickly scan parts to help predict failures before they happen. “There are tremendous possibilities for […]
