Two separate University of Pittsburgh research groups have received funding from America Makes to improve design development for three-dimensional printing.
Directed by faculty in Pitt’s Swanson School of Engineering, the two projects will receive more than $1.7 million.
Each group has a different approach to 3-D printing research. One group, led by Albert To, associate professor of mechanical engineering and material science, focuses on the design aspect of 3-D printing. The second group’s focus is on the process of additive manufacturing.
