Grant helps NIU develop manufacturing tools

DeKALB – Northern Illinois University will receive $2.4 million from the Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to develop tools for process control and qualifying parts made with layer-by-layer 3D printing or additive manufacturing. Additive manufacturing uses digital models to produce complex customized parts on-demand with less material waste than machining from a solid block. However, the tools to assure consistently uniform properties are yet to be developed.
