||Additive Manufacturing (AM) or 3D printing is a fast-growing technique for fabricating parts layer-by-layer directly from 3D digital models. AM has tremendous potential for producing high-value, complex, individually customized parts. As the 3D printing technology advances, both in hardware and software technology together with reduced materials cost and complexity of creating 3D printed items, its applications will expand to mass market areas.
In this symposium, leaders in this highly dynamic and research active area of AM will expound on this fastest growing industry of this decade. Sessions will be organized into following topic areas: process development and modeling, equipment and techniques, product engineering applications, in-situ and modular structures in architectural engineering and construction, electronics and energy related applications, and biological applications.
