Multimaterial 3D Printing Technology introduces the first models for complex construction and manufacturing using a multimaterial 3D printer. The book also explains the advantages that these innovative models provide at various points of the manufacturing supply chain. Innovations in fields such as medicine and aerospace are seeing 3D printing applied to problems that require the technology to develop beyond its traditional definitions. This groundbreaking book provides broad coverage of the theory behind this emerging technology, and the technical details required for readers to investigate these methods for themselves.
In addition to describing new models for application of this technology, this book also systematically summarizes the historical models, materials and relevant technologies that are important in multimaterial 3D printing.
- Introduces the heterogeneous object model for 3D printing
- Provides case studies of the use of hybrid 3D Printing to create gears and human bone
- Presents techniques which are easy to realize using commercial 3D printers
