Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The additive manufacturing (AM) revolution is in its very beginning stages, and the value of the AM market in the next decade is estimated to be in the several billions of Euros. AM is also developing exponentially in the areas of science and technology for medicine (artificial bones, implants, etc.), composites (ceramic-matrix, metal-matrix, etc., including diamond-containing compositions), automotive, and aerospace (metals, alloys, etc.).

This Special Issue is devoted to modern trends in manufacturing, as well as the properties and applications of 3D- and 4D-printed materials with a focus on powder production, characterization, SLM, SLS, other plasma-based and hybrid methods, etc., and the mechanical and physicochemical properties of the obtained products. The scope of this Special Issue also includes other methods of AM for the above-mentioned materials, including cold deposition, bioprinting, nano-object fabrication without plastics, plastic composites, and concrete-based building material manufacturing.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. 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. Materials 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 2000 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.
