ACEX 2015 Conference                 9th International Conference on Advanced Computational Engineering and Experimenting, ACE-X 2015, MUNICH-GERMANY

Special Session 12
ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING: 3D-PRINTING OF PLASTICS, METAL AND CERAMICS (SS12)

Parts are generated layer wise (nearly) without any restrictions regarding their shape and volume. While additive manufacturing is a well-known process for plastics, the 3D printing of metal is a relatively new discipline. Design with respect to functionality can be applied at a very high level. As an extension to rapid prototyping the generated parts show adequate properties and can be used under operating conditions. A possible field of application is a small batch series with large capabilities of individual configuration. The 3D-printing of metal is often seen a resource saving discipline.

Topics of the special session include:

  • Design & Optimization with respect to 3D-Printing
  • Materials: Metal, plastic, ceramic
  • Selective Laser Melting, Selective Laser Sintering, Laser Cladding
  • Rapid prototyping, rapid manufacturing, rapid tooling
  • Machines
  • Applications (e.g. mechanical engineering, medical, dental)
