Congratulations to Matt for his paper “Advancements to commercial 2D infill for lightweighting of structural FDM components” being published in Progress in Additive Manufacturing! Matt’s paper improves upon common commercial infill patterns by introducing continuously variable infill patterns. These changes showed improvement to failure strength and overall mass of 3D printed components.
Excellent work, Matt!

Stephen’s paper titled “Simultaneous isotropic and anisotropic multi-material topology
optimization for conceptual-level design of aerospace components” has been published to Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization. Stephen’s paper introduces the use of both isotropic and anisotropic materials in the same topology optimization 3D design space. Then, applies this multi-material optimization method to various components of a passenger aircraft seat.
Congratulations Stephen on your publication!
