Manufacturing of structural metal parts directly from computer aided design (CAD) data has been investigated by numerous researchers over the past decade. Researchers at NASA Langley Research Center are developing a new solid freeform fabrication process, electron beam freeform fabrication (EBF 3 ), as a rapid metal deposition process that works efficiently with a variety of weldable alloys. The EBF 3 process introduces metal wire feedstock into a molten pool that is created and sustained using… CONTINUE READING
