Special Issue "3D Printing of Metals"
A special issue of Metals (ISSN 2075-4701).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2016)
A printed edition of this Special Issue is available here.
3D printing is an emerging technique of immense engineering importance, capable of transforming the way we make components. However, it faces numerous challenges in order to become an integral part of manufacturing industry. This Special Issue, thus, focuses on inviting contributions on all aspects of the 3D printing of metals. The main themes are listed as follows:
- Issues related to 3D processing techniques for metals.
- Microstructural evolution during 3D printing
- Characteristics of 3D printed materials.
- Applications of 3D printed metal-based materials.
Contributions from academic researchers, practicing engineers, and industry are equally desirable to enable the readers to appreciate different points of view.
