Towards First Time Right Production Of Multi-Material 3D Printed Products (3D Printing USA 2017)

Dr Joris Remmers, Associate Professor Composite Materials
Eindhoven University of Technology

Presentation Summary

A framework will be presented to identify the relations between print process settings on the one hand and material properties on the other hand. We make use of experimental techniques in combination with advanced multi-physics numerical modeling tools to unravel the micro-mechanical behavior of the printed materials and their interfaces as a function of the printing conditions. These results can be used to define guidelines for the design of products and print strategies to print complex, multi-material products, First Time Right.

Speaker Biography (Joris Remmers)

Joris Remmers studied Aerospace Engineering at Delft University of Technology. He obtained his PhD in 2006 at the same university on the development of numerical techniques to simulate crack propagation in solid materials. Currently, he is an Associate Professor at the Mechanical Engineering department at Eindhoven University of Technology. His research interests include the analysis of the mechanical properties of 3D printed materials and composites.
