Recent advances in 3D printing and additive manufacturing (AM) beyond rapid prototyping and into the areas of functional prototypes, small scale manufacturing, and medical implants, have highlighted the need for material advances in this area.
This conference, organised jointly by the SCI All Ireland Group and Materials Chemistry Group, will look at recent advances in materials for AM, plus what are still seen as unmet needs. This will be the first Irish conference on materials for AM and will be relevant to academics and industrialists, both Irish and international.
