Since there has been a lot of discussion about nano technology, I just
would like to let everyone know about work that we have done combining
nano-technology and RP techniques.
One program was funded by the National Science Foundation and involved
using nanophase Hyrdoxyapatite powder along with traditional bioceramic
powders to produce filaments for the FDM process to build bio ceramic
The other involved nanophase alumina and silicon nitride powders along
with traditional ceramic powders which were used to produce ceramic
insulators for space-based systems using both direct (LOM) and indirect
(SLA patterns, rapid tooling and ceramic injection molding) RM
approaches. This was a 5 year program that we just finished. All
components produced by these rapid production methods underwent
physical test runs in thruster systems.
