Additive Manufacturing (AM) refers to a process by which digital 3D design data is used to build up a component in layers by depositing material. The term "3D printing" is increasingly used as a synonym for AM. However, the latter is more accurate in that it describes a professional production technique which is clearly distinguished from conventional methods of material removal. Instead of milling a workpiece from solid block, for example, AM builds up components layer by layer using materials which are available in fine powder form.
Prof. Paolo Gaudenzi, in an interview conducted by Almalaurea, describes the innovations that will characterize the new edition of the Master, as the possibility for students of dealing with the production and realization through 3D additive manufacturing and the new module on the development of applications and services.
At the Aerospace Structure Composite Lab of the University of Rome Sapienza, the structure of a cubesat satellite, manufactured in laminated composite material, is produced. It is provided of piezoelectric sensors embedded into the stacking sequence to monitor his structural behavior and transmit it via wireless radio connection.
