Abstract: 3D Printing (3DP) is an approach to process parts directly from its computer-aided design (CAD) file. 3DP is changing the landscapes of current industrial practices. On-demand manufacturing using 3DP technologies is a new trend that will significantly influence many industries and product design protocols. Since there is no need for any part-specific tooling, different parts can be built using the same machine. Most of these parts are net-shape or near-net-shape that may or may not require any finishing operation. We have worked on 3DP of hard materials, primarily metals and ceramics, over the last two decades. We have used fused deposition modeling, laser engineered net shaping, and powder bed-based 3D printing processes. We have manufactured parts with compositional, functional, and structural gradation mostly for structural and biomedical applications using these AM approaches. My presentation will focus on some of the key success stories from our research and current challenges in the field.
