Additive Manufacturing (3D printing) lab at TU Delft

After several years of research in the area of additive manufacturing, biofabrication, and additively manufactured biomaterials and implants, I finally put up the first version of the website of my lab. I will gradually improve the website, but there is already links to all publications coming out of my lab in the general area of AM.

Multistable Architected Materials for Trapping Elastic Strain Energy

3D printing and numerical analysis are combined to design a new class of architected materials that contain bistable beam elements and exhibit controlled trapping of elastic energy. The proposed energy-absorbing structures are reusable. Moreover, the mechanism of energy absorption stems solely from the structural geometry of the printed beam elements, and is therefore both materials- and loading-rate independent.

Postdoc on FE simulation of 3D printed cellular structures @ Ghent University (Belgium)

"3D printing" is a popular term for the layerwise manufacturing of metals or polymers with a printing head, that builds up the component with droplets of molten polymer or metal into a 3D shape. The geometries that can be realized with this technique, can be very complex, and this with a minimum of material usage, because no material has to be milled away. Further, very lightweight materials can be achieved. Flanders region plays a leading role in Europe in this 3D printing sector, with important industrial players such as Materialise, Layerwise and Melotte.

3D Printing of cylindrical shells with varied stiffness

Hi, all,

I'm planning to print a series of cylindrical shells with different material patches on shell surface. The size is about 100 mm in length, 80 mm in diameter and 0.5 mm in shell thickness. The shell was designed with varied stiffness by using two different material properties. The 3D assembly has been created with two groups such that it is easy to select one group for a specific material. I wonder did any of you try some commercial 3D printing companies or providers who can fabricate similar structure with varied stiffness and afforable cost. Let me know. Thanks!

Symposium on Architected Materials at Mach 2015

We are pleased to announce the symposium "Design, Fabrication and Characterization of Architected Materials" at the upcoming 2015 Mach Conference (http://machconference.org).  A full description of the symposium is provided below. Abstracts are due December 5, though please let us know if you are interested in participating but need additional time to prepare the abstract. 

Regards.
