SHAP3D is a collaboration between the University of Massachusetts Lowell, University of Connecticut and Georgia Institute of Technology to create an National Science Foundation I/UCRC focused on 3D printing. The Center's work encompasses many different additive printing / manufacturing methods and will enable:
- rational design and creation of new material feedstocks
- understanding the material properties, protocols, and design rules used in 3D printing
- developing new 3D printing methods for novel materials and composites
In an I/UCRC, NSF funding and pooled member fees are used to perform pre-competitive research. University faculty and students conduct the industry-defined research projects. Industry members have access to this research to expedite commercialization of new materials, printing methods, and products.
