Materials Challenge at New Designers 18

MaDE was actively involved in New Designers 2018, encouraging material science students from the Institute for Materials Discovery at UCL (University City London) and young members of IOM3 (Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining) to engage with a selection of exhibiting design graduates.


New Printing Technique for Strong Materials

Rotational additive manufacturing using polymer fibres could make prosthetics stronger. Ellis Davies reports. A novel circular 3D-printing method could give better control over the arrangement of short fibres in polymer matrices, which enables the creation of structural materials optimised for strength, stiffness, and damage tolerance. Developed by researchers at the Harvard John A. Paulson School … Continued
