This collaborative project aims to develop a range of glass-based additive manufacturing techniques, allowing complex 3D shapes to be additively manufactured out of almost any glass (silica, borosilicate, soda-lime-silicate, bioactive glasses, phosphate based glass) and without using a binder. This could have applications in a wide variety of industries including biomedical, pharmaceutical and decorative glass applications.
One particular application area of interest is in the printing of custom microfluidic devices and flow reactors. Added Scientific’s role in this project is to model flow through these printed structures and to develop user-friendly software tools that can automatically design printable devices. This brings together our expertise in Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).
“Bespoke software tools for specific Additive Manufacturing applications are increasingly important – Added Scientific’s expertise in this area can help companies to solve their design challenges.”
