3D Printing offers new opportunties to fabricate prototypes, models, and is expanding into the consumer market. 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, offers a method to produce incredibly complex components directly from a computer-aided design (CAD) model. Unfortunately, the layered nature of the fabrication process results in anisotropic properties and performance that are dominated by interfaces that are formed during production. The expansion of 3D printing will require the development of materials, methods, and techniques to strengthen these interfaces in a highly controlled manner. This webinar will discuss methods to realize this improvement of interfaces, discuss potential uses and markets for 3D printing and the potential role of interfacial modifiers and adhesives in this endeavor. 



  •  To learn the benefits and potential limitations of 3D printing
  •  Provide insight into the importance of interfaces and potential role of Adhesives in 3D Printing
  •  Develop understanding of Opportunities to use 3D Printing in manufacturing

Mark Dadnum – Professor, University of Tennessee


Mark Dadmun received his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Massachusetts and a Ph.D. from the University of Massachusetts working with Prof. M. Muthukumar in Polymer Science and Engineering. He subsequently was awarded a National Research Council Post-doctoral Fellowship, which was completed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology working with Dr. Charles Han. Prof. Dadmun then joined the faculty of the Chemistry Department at the University of Tennessee, where he is now a Full Professor. His current appointments include Joint Faculty at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in the Chemical Science Division and Founding Director of the Soft Materials Research in Tennessee (SMART) Center.
