3D printing is a multipurpose technology including areas as rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing including both direct tooling and direct manufacturing. Each area calls for research within technology, materials/composites, design/modelling and business integration.
Thus 3D printing is integrated across all centers and sections at the Faculty of Engineering both through Direct research projects or Research projects applying 3D printing.
