    © 2016 by ASME. Though walking impairments are prevalent in society, clinical treatments are often ineffective at restoring lost function. For this reason, researchers have begun to explore the use of patient-specific ...
  • Finite element analysis of the thermal behavior of a RepRap 3D printer liquefier 

    Jerez Mesa, Ramón; Travieso Rodriguez, Jose Antonio; Corbella, Xavier; Busqué, Raquel; Gómez Gras, David (2016-05-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The aim of this paper is to analyze the performance of a RepRap 3D printer liquefier by studying its thermal behavior, focusing on the convective heat dissipation developed along the liquefier body during the 3D printing ...
