ITAMCO Wins Contract with US Air Force to Develop 3D-Printed Runway Mat

Additive Manufacturing

AM-2 matting has served the United States military well since the Vietnam War, but the materials and technology in the ITAMCO-led research project will offer many benefits over AM-2 matting. Additional benefits of the new runway material include: The PXCM solution is targeted to weigh 3.5

Using SOLIDWORKS to Help in 3D Printing Thin Structures

CATI Tech Notes

An obstacle we sometimes encounter when 3D printing with a polyjet printer is if the wall thickness is too small, the waterjet that cleans off the support material will also remove the main material. Chad Whitbeck, CSWP.
