Example text

When properly processed, the static mechanical properties of additively manufactured metallic materials are comparable to the conventionally fabricated metallic components or counterparts. The relatively high cooling rates achieved during additive manufacturing tend to reduce partitioning while concurrently favoring reduced grain size. Most additive manufacturing fabricated materials tend to exhibit both microstructure and mechanical property anisotropy along the Z direction, or through the thickness.

This makes the technology of additive manufacturing both suitable and appropriate. Following tests on additive manufactured parts, BAE Systems approved a replacement part that was made entirely by additive manufacturing. The part was a plastic window breather pipe for the 146 regional jets of BAE. Around the same time, Optomec, Inc. 112 Arup, Inc. (London), another rapidly growing small business venture, developed a 3D printing technique for creating structural steel elements that can be used in construction.

Additive manufacturing, however, cannot fully compete with conventional manufacturing, especially in the domain of mass production, primarily because of the following:59 • Limitations in size—Additive manufacturing processes often use a liquid polymer or a powder that is inlaid with resin or plaster to build object layers. The use of such materials for additive manufacturing means that large objects cannot be produced, primarily due to a lack of material strength. Further, large objects become impractical when considering the extended amount of time required to complete the build process.
