Oak Ridge Scientist Gives Insight Into 3D Printing Research With Fabrisonic, Cummins And DM3D

Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is frequently covered by 3D Printing Industry. We’ve reported on projects such as the first 3D printed submarine hull, record-breaking BAAM machines and even a drug-sniffing 3D printed moth.  I spoke to Dr. Niyanth Sridharan – a Postdoctoral researcher in the Material Science and Technology Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory – to learn more about what it is like to work at the lab, and also about two recent projects using additive manufacturing.  Recently he has worked as project lead, investigating how diesel engines can be refurbished with additive manufacturing and also in a group looking at how Ultrasonic Additive Manufacturing can be used to make nuclear reactor components.
