Design for AM – A Focus on Polymers

Key Research Theme Leader

Candice Majewski –  University of Sheffield


Participants’ geographical distribution

The event provided an insight into the opportunities presented by polymer AM, how to get the best out of polymer AM processes, and where we might be heading in the future.

Candice has been involved in the area of Additive Manufacturing since 2000. Her main research focus is on polymer-based processes (in particular polymer sintering technologies), although her teaching and Outreach activities span the broader context and applications of Additive Manufacturing.
