Reactive extrusion 3D printing

Yuyang Wu, PhD student | Centre for Additive Manufacturing, AMIChemE , will demo his project at 3D Medical Conference & Expo

Reactive extrusion 3D printing is a process, whereby two feeds are mixed and deposited onto the platform. In-situ reaction bonds the layers through cross-linking. This technology improves the interlayer adhesion, mitigate the thermal distortion and provides faster print speed.

Printability and process study have being done with polyurethane formulation. The findings can be followed for other reactive formulations, and potentially print functional biomedical products with mechanical gradient.
