Materials for fused filament fabrication – Presented by Kristel Boere, Ultimaker

Materials for fused filament fabrication – Presented by Kristel Boere, Ultimaker B.V. at the 3D Printing Materials Conference which will take place on 2 February 2017 at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Sittard-Geleen, The Netherlands.

Desktop 3D printers using fused filament fabrication are making their way into the industrial environments. Therefore, there is an increasing demand for engineering polymers to print with, to open up new applications. At the same time, the challenges that come from creating an object layer-by-layer need to be addressed. The understanding of the process parameters and their impact on the material’s properties will help industry to adopt 3D printing technology on their current workflow.

About Kristel Boere
Kristel Boere obtained her bachelor’s and master’s degree in chemistry at Utrecht University. In 2015, she finished her PhD on the development of new polymers as injectable and 3D-printable materials for biomedical applications. Since then, she is working as a material research engineer at Ultimaker on material development for FFF.
