Going Beyond 3D Printing to Add a New Dimension for Additive Manufacturing

By Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory A team of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory researchers has demonstrated the 3D printing of shape-shifting structures that can fold or unfold to reshape themselves when exposed to heat or electricity. The micro-architected structures were fabricated from a conductive, environmentally responsive Read More »

3D-Printed Foam Outperforms Standard Materials

By Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) material scientists have found that 3D-printed foam works better than standard cellular materials in terms of durability and long-term mechanical performance. Foams, also known as cellular solids, are an important class of materials with applications Read More »
