VulcanForms: Additive manufacturing at industrial scale

John Hart had a productive first semester at MIT.He instructed a class on additive manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing.He found the subject fascinating, even though it was not his primary area of research at the time.

So did a considerable lot of the understudies in the class, including Martin Feldmann MEng ’14.Feldmann joined Hart’s research group full-time after receiving his MEng in advanced manufacturing.They became close there because they were both interested in AM.

They saw a potential chance to improve with a laid out metal AM innovation, known as laser powder bed combination, and concocted an idea to acknowledge metal AM at a modern scale.
