A three-year collaboration between university and industry experts will develop advanced materials and production parts using three dimensional printing technology, also known as additive manufacturing.

PolyOne Corporation, Cleveland, OH, will work alongside researchers at Dayton Research Institute, Dayton, OH, and other companies on the project, which was made possible through an Ohio Third Frontier grant of nearly $3 million. The group will develop and produce polymer formulations that will be used in specialty applications for the aerospace and automotive industries.
