3D printing copper is important in the space industry for printing rocket nozzles, like the one produced by Stratasys Direct Manufacturing, shown here

Lasers initiate copper 3D printing take-off

Optically-driven additive manufacturing is entering uncharted territory with challenging reflective, thermally conductive metals such as copper, finds Andy Extance

Adding up in Aachen

Matthew Dale reports from the AKL International Laser Technology Congress, in Aachen, Germany, in May, where the potential for additive manufacturing in series production was high on the agenda

Printing parts

Laser additive manufacturing is an excellent tool for prototyping, but now the technique is being used to build production-quality parts, as Tom Eddershaw discovers
