engineering careers  US breakthrough in 3D printing

Engineers from HRL laboratories in California have developed a ceramic processing technique that is being hailed as a “breakthrough” by US engineers.

The 3D printing technique is used to create complex, tough and heat resistant ceramic components, which the team claim has huge advantages over current production techniques of ceramic components. The engineers say the material and process could be used in a wide range of applications including electronic device packaging.
