Additive manufacturing (AM) or 3D Printing (3DP) is an approach to process parts directly from its computer-aided design (CAD) file. AM is changing the landscapes of current industrial practices. On-demand manufacturing using AM 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. We have worked on AM of metal matrix composites over the last two decades using the directed energy deposition (DED) and powder bed fusion (PBF) processes. Among others, we have manufactured parts with compositional and functional gradation using Ti alloys, steels, Inconel 718, and tungsten for structural and biomedical applications. This presentation will focus on some of the key success stories from our research and current challenges in the field.
