Boom! Australia commits $2M to 3D printed explosives research

Defence Science and Technology (DST) Group, a public-funded Australian R&D organization specializing in energetics materials, is researching the viability of 3D printed explosives, propellants, and pyrotechnics. The research could lead to the production of “advanced weapons systems.” As a rule of thumb, your 3D prints shouldn’t explode when they leave the print bed. If they do, seek assistance from your printer and material suppliers. Occasionally, however, 3D printing can be used to make things that should explode, such explosives, propellant, and pyrotechnics. A new joint research effort could be about to make big advances in this area. Defence Science […]
