SHAP3D: An NSF Industry-University Cooperative Research Center Webinar (2019)
The Center for the Science of Heterogeneous Additive Printing of 3D Materials (SHAP3D), a National Science Foundation and industry-funded research center, brings the innovation research capabilities of leading universities to serve the diverse interests of industry, government, and academia to address fundamental research challenges to meet the commercial needs of industry for heterogeneous 3D printing of materials.
SHAP3D will accelerate expansion and competitiveness of the domestic AM industry and its customers by addressing two critical market needs: (1) the growth of AM into more complex topologies, heterogeneous, and multi-functional applications that command high margins commensurate with their increased performance, and (2) the expansion of AM into lower-margin industries via order-of-magnitude improvements in throughput, material-per-performance cost reductions, and ease-of-use design rules that enable industry to rapidly adopt advanced techniques. SHAP3D will train a technically oriented workforce with industrial perspective through the close collaboration between industry and academia.
This webinar provided a concise overview of SHAP3D’s mission, operation, funding, intellectual property, project selection, and management.
