Digital 3D Printing of Microparticles

John Hart with Justin Beroz and Ulrich Muecke 

On-demand production, especially for complex and high value parts, would be valuable to many industries. Additive manufacturing processes broadly aim to enable this; however, state-of-the-art methods cannot achieve the dimensional resolution and surface finish required for many precision applications. This project will develop a new direct-write printing technology, to enable high resolution multi-material deposition, at speeds comparable to inkjet printing.
