Recent breakthroughs in additive manufacturing research include 3D printed bones and implants made with custom machinery and materials developed by Waterloo Engineering researchers.

Additive manufacturing is game-changing technology, commonly known as 3D printing, with a relatively simple concept at its core: building three-dimensional objects in layer-by-layer fashion. 

Waterloo Engineering strives to be a global leader in additive manufacturing research, with faculty and students dedicated to fundamentally changing the way things are made.

Current research projects include: adding intelligence to machines through sensors and control algorithms; developing methods to use new materials for production; and helping industry deploy AM equipment on shop floors.

Ehsan Toyserkani, professor and University Research Chair in Additive Manufacturing, explains how additive manufacturing will change the way we produce and consume goods.
