Rich Knowledgebase for 3D Printing Industry

Additive manufacturing used to produce a 3-inch diameter strainwave gear flexspline using a multi-material printing strategy. A wire-fed DED is used to produce a thin-walled cup blank with highly machinable steel which then functionally grades to high-strength steel in the teeth. The printed part is machined into the final flexspline, which comprises both materials in a single part.
