Summary

The fused deposition (FD) solid freeform fabrication (SFF) process is being used to produce silicon nitride turbine blades. The ability of FD to deposit multiple materials within each build layer has been used to design a blade with a multi-material attachment area to minimize the risk of contact damage. An overview of the materials and structural design process will be presented
