My Research on a New 3D Printing Process
How and Why I Pivoted to Additive Manufacturing
Hello! Welcome to my personal newsletter. Check out my video update below!
After being in San Francisco over the summer, I’m back in Toronto and I’ve pivoted to working on additive manufacturing.
I’m looking into vibratory fluidization, which is a way of making powder behave like fluid when the container is vibrated.
I’m researching how fluidization can be used as a mechanism for material delivery that would allow metal 3d printers to run much faster. I explain my approach in the video I recorded above.
I've been thinking about testing a basic prototype sometime soon, but I still need to figure out the design, and find a way to get funding.
At a higher level I’ve been feeling a bit anxious because I’ve been out of school for a while, and I feel like if I’m under a time crunch to figure things out.
I’m thinking that I might work somewhere fulltime if my curent focus on 3d printing doesn’t work out.
Bonus: I did some research into how chemical vapor deposition could be used for 3d printing, but ended up not pursuing it because the process wouldn’t be fast enough. I wrote a post with my findings here.
That’s it for this update! If you know somebody I should talk to, let me know!
