Elementum 3D on Materials and Expansion in Metal Additive Manufacturing
One of the many considerations in 3D printing is what materials should be used for the printing process. Though still limited, 3D printing materials have expanded in recent years. Going from traditional materials like plastics and polymers, like PEEK and PLA, to metals and composites, there have been huge advancements in the field. Recently, researchers have even found ways to print with previously unavailable materials like copper and bone. However, despite this growth, there is still a long way to go. We were able to sit down with Dr. Jacob Nuechterlein of Elementum 3D, an American an additive manufacturing research and development company that specializes in the creation of advanced metals, composites, and ceramics. We learned about their RAM technology and the metal AM sector!
