Sintering of 3D Printed Copper-Steel Functionally Graded Materials

Semester: Fall 2021


Presentation description

Functionally graded materials elimate the need for dissimilar metal welds and joints used in fields such as structural, aerospace, biological, electrical, and others. Using your basic 3D printing process, copper to steel parts are easily printed using PLA filament infused with metal particles. These parts go through a debinding and sintering process leaving a pure metal part. This project tests the conceptual idea of creating functionally graded materials using this process.
