Researchers 3D Print First High-Performance Nanostructured Alloy That’s Both Ultrastrong and Ductile

Researchers at UMass Amherst and Georgia Tech have 3D printed a dual-phase, nanostructured high-entropy alloy that exceeds the strength and...
NIST has awarded $3.7 million in grants to help address barriers to widespread adoption of metals-based additive manufacturing through measurement science research. Additive manufacturing typically creates parts and components by building them layer by layer, based on a 3D computer model. Most metals-based additive processes form parts by melting or sintering material in powder form.
