Sprint Challenge Brief:
Additive manufacturing/3D printing of composite materialsSubmission Closed
On behalf of multiple international corporations, TechConnect Ventures is seeking innovations and emerging technologies from around the world describing new materials and technologies for composite 3-D printing. Composite 3-D printed materials offer significant advantages over other materials due to enhanced mechanical properties such as strength, stiffness, toughness, wear resistance, and conductivity while preserving other 3-D printing advantages such as customization and low-cost. Traditional composite manufacturing requires significant skill, cost, and post-processing. Additive manufacturing systems that can handle composite materials have recently become of great interest for the wide variety of applications that composite materials serve including the automotive, aerospace, and biomedical industries.
Areas of Interest
Our clients are broadly interested in any technologies that improve the quality and manufacturability of 3-D printing of composite materials. Relevant areas of interest include, but are not limited to, materials and technologies for:
