View Resource Materials for 3D Printing by Fused Deposition

The lesson includes lecture materials and demonstrations/activities for illustrating concepts related to polymer properties in 3D printing. A basic overview of polymer structure and behavior is followed by classroom activities, and then a more in-depth discussion of the specific polymers used in common fused deposition modeling (FDM) printers. The effects of chemistry and structure on the...
View Resource The Macrogalleria

This website contains basically everything you would want to know about polymer science. Over a hundred mini-articles are present and are organized into an interactive mall of sorts. Each floor deals with a specific topic (listed above) and contains several articles, most of which contain useful molecular images and links to other articles. Many of the articles also contain interactive 3-D...
