Jean Pierre Kruth will be speaking at 3D Printing Event

Jean Pierre Kruth will be speaking about the survey of progress in Additive Manufacturing: the Leuven experience 1990-2013

3D Printing EventThe presentation describes the evolution of 3D printing (additive manufacturing) from 1990 till 2013 based on a historical survey of KU Leuven. It reviews how 3D printing initially only aimed at producing polymer components for rapid prototyping, and how it gradually extended to the production of metallic parts and production of functional series components, while today research even goes to production of ceramic components.
