Additive manufacturing is game-changing technology, commonly known as 3D printing,with a relatively simple concept at its core: building three-dimensional objects in layer-by-layer fashion.

Waterloo Engineeringstrives to be aglobal leader in additive manufacturing research,with faculty and students dedicated to fundamentally changing the way things are made.

Current research projectsinclude: adding intelligence to machines through sensors and control algorithms; developing methods to use new materials for production; and helping industry deploy AM equipment on shop floors.

Ehsan Toyserkani, professor and University Research Chair in Additive Manufacturing, explains how additive manufacturing will change the way we produce and consume goods.

A unique multidisciplinary research environment offering holistic approaches for the development of next generation additive manufacturing technology, novel intelligent additive manufacturing systems, simulation/modeling, materials, quality assurance algorithms, metrology devices, closed-loop control systems, and ex-situ and in-situ characterization methodologies for different classes of additive manufacturing.

Providing high quality rapid prototyping and end use parts to students, staff and faculty, with a focus on undergraduate students and design teams.

Part of the Mechatronic Vehicle Systems Lab, this lab is involved in many research projects in the field of laser additive manufacturing (LAM). LAM research areas include modeling and control, coating of hard materials, and applications of the laser additive manufacturing process.
