A new era of manufacturing is upon us. Recent developments in 3D printing and additive manufacturing technologies are set to usher in the next generation of industrial competitiveness. To address the rapid advances and potential of this groundbreaking new technology, Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers has released an exclusive preview issue of our new peer-reviewed journal 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing (3DP).
Editor-in-Chief Dr. Hod Lipson, Director of Cornell University's Creative Machines Lab at the Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and his expert Editorial Board invite you to view this exclusive preview issue. The Journal will explore emerging challenges and opportunities in additive manufacturing, ranging from new developments of processes and materials, to novel applications in new areas, such as health, medicine, and bio-printing.
To maximize the global impact of this important forum, the articles will be translated into Mandarin Chinese and appear alongside the English version.
"This powerful new journal provides a much-needed multidisciplinary forum on the rapidly evolving technologies of 3D printing engineering and additive manufacturing on a global scale," says Dr. Lipson. "3DP provides a much-needed professional forum for professionals interested in 3D printing across diverse fields, to work towards establishing the next industrial revolution. This journal provides biologists, engineers, materials specialists, and computer scientists a common meeting place."
3DP also addresses the important questions surrounding this powerful and growing field, including issues in policy and law, intellectual property, data standards, safety and liability, environmental impact, social, economic, and humanitarian implications, and emerging business models at the industrial and consumer scales.
