Introduction to Additive Manufacturing Tutorial

Toronto Marriott Downtown Easton Centre Hotel

Toronto, Canada

Held in conjunction with GFMAT2-Bio4

Sunday, July 21  8 a.m. - noon

Instructor: Dr. Roger Narayan, University of North Carolina and North Carolina State University

Course Description: Additive manufacturing is a novel fabrication process for polymer, metal and ceramic materials that involves layer-by-layer fabrication of a three-dimensional part through selective joining of material. Additive manufacturing techniques such as fused deposition modeling, stereolithography, selective laser sintering, and bioprinting technologies allow for innovative and complex part fabrication, client customization, rapid prototyping, and distributed manufacturing. This course will provide an introduction to additive manufacturing with a focus on ceramics.  

Topics will include:

·       Introduction and principles

·       Advantages over traditional subtractive manufacturing processes

·       Materials

·       Techniques and equipment

·       Current and Future Applications
