Open Source Workflow for Inkjet 3D Printing, 2014

Advanced Manufacturing Research Institute (AMRI), Miller Lab, Rice University

During my 2014 Fellowship at AMRI, I headed research and development to build a workflow for open source 3D inkjet printing. 

  • I worked closely with Jordan Miller the team at Millerlab, building on the work done by Steve Kelly during AMRI 2013
  • Developed a proof-of-concept workflow for open source inkjet 3D printing  
  • Modified an existing 3D printer and designed new hardware for inkjet 3D printing
  • Tested and characterized compatibility of several materials including Calcium Alginate Hydrogel, PEG-DA, and UV reactive resins
  • Compiled a comprehensive documentation set for the research project and Presented findings to the Rice community
