Michigan Tech studies 3D printing metal composites with Lulzbot, ColorFabb and Proto Pasta

New research from Michigan Technological University evaluates the thermal properties of metal composite PLA filaments. The paper is intended “ fill the knowledge gap by quantifying the thermal properties of copperFill, bronzeFill, magnetic iron PLA, and stainless steel PLA composites.” The article is co-authored by Joshua Pearce who recently gave us his perspective on the future of 3D printing and has also published a study showing how to make money with a 3D printer . This most recent paper, ‘ Thermal properties of 3-D printed polylactic acid-metal composites’ , is published by the Progress in Additive Manufacturing journal. A […]
