Carnegie Mellon Launches 3D Print Consortium – Rapid Ready Technology

by • August 14, 2016 • No Comments

Engineers at Carnegie Mellon University have launched an initiative aimed at advancing 3D printing innovation in traditional building. The university has created a new consortium that can include representatives of industry, government and pro associations, and so far comes with members of GE, Alcoa, U.S. Steel, the Federal Aviation Administration, SAE International and the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory.
The group can work in collaboration with Carnegie Mellon’s NextManufacturinnext-logog Center, that brings together students of the college of engineering, school of desktop science, and college of science to create new ways to use 3D printing in building.
The center revealed the consortium on July 22.
“Additive building is here now, and it’s here to stay,” said Jack Beuth, director of the NextManufacturing Center and professor of mechanical engineering. “One of the many significant steps in building real progress with this innovation is to bring all the key players — academia, industry, government, nonprofits — together to share knowledge, ideas and challenges. It is an integral part of creating a thriving additive building ecoprocess, and in modern times, we get do that here at Carnegie Mellon.”
“With Carnegie Mellon’s deep history in additive building research and the new ideas of our ability and students, the NextManufacturing Center is incredibly well poised to tackle the challenges of this advancing innovation,” said James Garrett, dean of the College of Engineering. “This new consortium is an significant opportunity to bring major industry, government and nonprofit insight into the center’s research goals.”
Carnegie Mellon is in addition major an America Makes project to create a computational process and educational materials for the create and make of 3D core structures for the aerospace industry.
