Fabrication of additive manufactured new functional materials and structual materials, and development of processing techniques

This joint research carries out three topics with advanced, unique and innovative in mind. The first topic is to design lattice structural materials and multiple material composites with novel functions, based on computer simulations such as topology optimization. The second one is to fabricate the designed material with additive manufacturing technologies, commonly known as 3D print, which can fabricate parts with arbitrary shape according to sliced 3D–CAD data without mold and subtractive machining process. The third one is to establish advanced process technologies associated with the material fabrication using additive manufacturing technologies. Furthermore, these research topics aim to generate new materials, which traditional process technologies cannot generate, with establishing their process technologies.
