Report: Metamaterials Will Partly Depend on Additive Manufacturing
Metamaterials don't exist in nature. Their unusual properties are engineered to make materials with specific novel electromagnetic, acoustic, or mechanical characteristics using carefully designed and controlled nanostructures or microstructures. (Source: Lux Research)
Most of the new 3D printers and 3D printing technologies in this crop are breaking some boundaries, whether it's build volume-per-dollar ratios, multimaterials printing techniques, or new materials types.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
