3D printing trends for 2021: A year of radical renewal
As we mark our entry into the fourth decade of 3D printing in 2021, we also enter a decade with the potential for radical renewal. The COVID-19 crisis has had an enormous effect on every industry and continues to propel us into a space where we need to think difierently. We need to think about where we need to push the boundaries of innovation and creativity. With this being said, the legacy of 3D printing starts in 2021 with three key trends: going back to the drawing board to rethink manufacturing; enabling the personalization of not only products, but also 3D printers themselves; and creating new solutions, fast, explain Kristof Sehmke, Communication Manager, Materialise and Bram Smits, Public Affairs, PR & Investor Relations, Materialise.

Case Study
Legacy components for the Indian space industry in metal additive manufacturing
Additive manufacturing or 3D printing is perceived as an innovative processing method to replace traditionally produced parts, including castings and multicomponent parts. 3D printing helps to create parts in a brief timeframe, with least material wastage, and permits a more elevated level of customisation.
In this case, two brackets were made using AISI-316L grade for aviation applications, using laser powder bed fusion technology. A thorough analysis was performed on the powder to check for structural integrity to qualify the component for functional testing. A large amount of material was removed, extreme machining time and related issues, for example, residual stress and warpage conceived, which would happen in conventional methods, have been eradicated by taking up additive manufacturing.
