3D Printing of Materials and Structures for Functional Applications

3D printing, more formally referred to as additive manufacturing, is a disruptive technology for advanced manufacturing endowed with design flexibility, part complexity and versatile functionalities. Recently, rapid advances in 3D printing have facilitated the fabrication of materials and structures for multiple functions, in tandem with the development of new processes and systems. The rapid refinement and commercialization of the technology brings about invaluable opportunities and challenges for academic research and industrial applications.

This special issue aims at providing new ideas and presenting the latest advances on 3D printing of materials and structures, with a particular emphasis for their functional applications. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • 3D printing of advanced functional materials
  • 3D printing of multi-materials with functionalities
  • Design and modeling of functional structures for 3D printing
  • New methodologies, processes, and systems for functional 3D printing
  • 4D printing for functional applications

All submitted papers should be well written in English, while constituting original work that has not been published elsewhere. They will be peer-reviewed by independent reviewers and published in Virtual and Physical Prototyping as OA articles. The deadline for submission is 17 September 2020.
