Special Issue "Progress in 3D Printing of Metals – Status Year 2019"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2019.
3D printing is rapidly emerging as a key manufacturing technique capable of serving a wide spectrum of applications, ranging from engineering to biomedical sectors. Its ability to form both simple and intricate shapes through computer-controlled graphics enables it to create a niche in the manufacturing sector. Many challenges have been solved, while many challenges remain, and much research is still required to develop 3D printing technology for all classes of materials including polymers, metals, ceramics, and composites. In view of the growing importance and acceptance of 3D manufacturing worldwide, we are launching this Special Issue, aiming to seek original articles to further assist in the development of this promising technology from both scientific and technological perspectives. Targeted reviews including mini-reviews are also welcome, as they play a crucial role in educating students and young researchers.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
