The NextManufacturing Center is one of the world’s leading research centers for additive manufacturing. With more than 20 researchers from across disciplines, the center remains at the forefront of this field by researching the interrelated processing, materials, cost, and design challenges of additive manufacturing.
Researchers at Carnegie Mellon are experts in a wide range of additive technologies using materials that range from biological and soft materials to metals, but the NextManufacturing Center has a particularly strong focus on the direct metal processes. Because of research from the NextManufacturing Center, 3-D printing with metals will change drastically over the next five years. The center is developing an entirely new approach to metals additive manufacturing—merging data from all parts of the process to create a fully integrated understanding of the technology.
