A team of UK scientists has shown how atomic-scale strengthening mechanisms observed in metals and alloys can be exploited to make 3D printed structures more robust. Mimicking the microcrystalline structure of metallic materials offers a novel way to engineer so-called architected materials, creating lightweight 3D structures that are stronger than ones that have been fabricated until now. This research also opens an avenue for modelling and observing complex phenomena in metallurgy.
