AMRC with Boeing develops hybrid 3D printing process that enables built-in electronics

The Design and Prototyping Group of the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) has unveiled a “game-changing” new hybrid 3D printing process called THREAD. Based out of the University of Sheffield and working with aircraft manufacturing company Boeing, the AMRC says its new additive manufacturing process allows for electrical, optical, and structural elements to be introduced into a 3D printed part while it is being built. Currently awaiting a patent, the novel THREAD 3D printing process is described as fully automated, and can be applied to a range of different 3D printing platforms. At present, the AMRC says it has […]
