IDE researchers optimise bone-inspired 3D printing infill structures
In order to create realistic bone-like structures with a 3D printer, assistant professor Jun Wu and fellow researchers developed an algorithm, that was published in March this year. Now, the research group has optimised the algorithm, resulting in stronger and lighter structures.
Jun Wu and his fellow researchers from TU Denmark and TU Munich have optimised the boundary shell and the porous infill used in the technique. This way, the 3D printed parts can have infill tailored to the object.
