Oak Ridge scientists develop plant based renewable 3D printing material, 100% improvement on ABS

A team from the Materials Science and Technology Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has published a study describing a significantly improved 3D printing material. Writing in the scientific journal Applied Materials Today, the patent-pending process is described as giving “100% improved inter-layer adhesion strength” when 3D printed. Sustainable 3D printing composites To produce […]

Navy’s Disruptive Technology Lab realisiert 3D-gedrucktes U-Boot mit BAAM 3D-Drucker

Das Navy’s Disruptive Technology Lab entwickelte in Kooperation mit dem Oak Ridge National Lab (ORNL) den ersten 3D-gedruckten U-Boot-Rumpf für das US-Militär. In nur wenigen Tagen wurde der knapp neun Meter lange, aus Carbonfaser gefertigte Rumpf auf ORNLs Big Area Additive Manufacturing (BAAM) 3D-Drucker realisiert.  U-Boote herzustellen ist ein kostspieliges Unterfangen. Die Kosten eines Rumpfs für ein tauchfähiges SEAL Delivery Vehicle […]

Big Area Additive Manufacturing is Potentially Game Changing

(TheMotleyFool) BAAM is what its name implies: “big area additive manufacturing.” This technology has recently started bubbling up on the scene, with large well-respected companies entering, or deepening their involvement in, this potentially game-changing niche. It remains to be seen how these new players will affect the leadership positions of 3D Systems and Stratasys in the 3D printing sector. Two of the biggest stories on the BAAM front involve Cincinnati Incorporated and Lockheed Martin working in partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Cincinnati and Oak Ridge National Lab signed an agreement to develop a 3D printer that is 200-500 times faster and capable of printing polymer components 10 times larger — up to about one cubic meter — than most of today’s 3D printers.
