Presentation Transcript
how it works
How it works
  • Fuses metal powder together layer by layer - additive
  • Able to also make cuts by vaporizing metal in an area- subtractive
  • Reads from a 3D Cad file
slide3
Pros
  • Extremely accurate cuts
  • Requires no additional work after the alloy is fused together
  • Parts are created fully solid and very strong
  • Vacuum removes

impurities in the metal

slide4
Cons
  • Size of part is limited to vacuum chamber
  • Produces gamma rays
  • Part must be electrically conductive
application
Application
  • Hip or knee implants
  • Bone plates
  • Aerospace
  • Possibly on moon missions
