The recently introduced Calibur3 system from Wayland Additive overcomes challenges to bring new materials and capabilities to EBM metal 3D printing.
In this episode of The Cool Parts Show, we learn how controlled porosity obtained through binder jetting can be applied to build metal filters capable of trapping — and even eliminating — virus particles.

Terminology confusion might be coming, because the answer is likely yes. A provider of glass flake for plastics foresees applications to AM, specifically as a reinforcement within 3D printing filament.
Researchers at Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO, have created the first self-expanding nitinol stents made via powder bed fusion. The project points to more opportunities with this shape memory alloy.
Uniformity 6061 aluminum will be available exclusively to Desktop Metal customers as part of its ongoing partnership with Uniformity Labs.
Additive manufacturing with an aluminum/ceramic composite enables a brake rotor with one-third the weight and five times the heat transfer of a typical rotor. We talk to the inventor on this episode of The Cool Parts Show.

Thermal and conductive properties of pure copper open new 3D printing possibilities within many industries.
Material offers great tensile properties, validation, reliability and crack resistance, which opens industrial 3D printing options for turbines and other energy industry applications.
3D printed polymer-derived ceramics (PDCs) could find wider application through a process developed at the University of Texas at Dallas that extrudes preceramic material in a self-healing bath for support through printing and curing.
Research shows graphene lowers reflectivity of copper powder to achieve more dense AM printed parts.
The development phase of creating injection molded parts and inserts often requires the production of small-quantity prototypes. This moldmaker compared two different AM technologies to produce prototype mold inserts made from tool steel and polypropylene photopolymer.
