International collaboration targeting new standards for material characterization in 3D printing

A major breakthrough in photopolymer additive manufacturing has been achieved through a collaborative effort led by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), which saw the contribution of over two dozen laboratories from six countries. The “Surface Engineering and Fluid interfaces Laboratory” (SEFI Lab) from the Department of Materials Science at University of Milano-Bicocca participated to the research study, as the only representative from Italy.
