Researchers 3D-print with reactive materials

Dec. 16, 2015 -  
Reactive composite materials are everywhere, from the life-saving air bags in your car to the dazzling pyrotechnics in Fourth of July fireworks. But one of the main drawbacks to using these materials has been the unpredictability of their reactions. Historically, the way to alter the performance in...

Engineer develops 'leap forward' with 3D-printer

Dec. 11, 2015 -  
Lawrence Livermore Lab engineer Bryan Moran wasn’t necessarily looking to improve on 3D printing technology when he moved over to Additive Manufacturing three years ago, but he may have done just that. Moran’s creation, a new take on a process called projection micro-stereolithography, which uses...
