Could PLA be used for 3D printed prosthetics?
The US NIST has developed a technique for measuring mechanical stress in 3D printed metal parts that could change how 3D printing is done.
This week’s selection is “Mechanical Behavior of Materials” by Norman Dowling, Stephen Kampe, and Milo Kral.
Xometry performed an unusual test of many 3D prints using different materials and processes. The results were surprising.
