3D Printing & Additive Manufacturing
Danielle Cote
Assistant Professor, Mechanical & Materials Engineering
Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI)
3D printing, particularly metal additive manufacturing, has already begun to produce large scale components for a variety of applications. As the technology improves, the expansion of these large parts to more even applications will increase. We can look for these large components to replace traditional manufacturing applications – for example, large parts made from conventional casting processes now can be 3D printed with various directed energy deposition (DED) processes. The ability to print these large parts on site will reduce the need for expensive and complicated shipping logistics of the parts; only the feedstock material (metal wire or powder) will need to be transported to locations with existing 3D printing capabilities.
