Additive Manufacturing (AM) was newly developed as novel process to create three dimensional (3D) structures through two dimensional (2D) layer laminations. Metal and ceramic nanoparticles were dispersed into resin paste to use for our original process. In lithography techniques, a high power laser beam was scanned on the spread paste for 2D layer drawing and 3D structure forming. In deposition techniques, the paste was introduced into high temperature plasma or gas flame for 2D cladding and 3D patterning. Created electric devices, biological implants and energy modules will contribute to sustainable development.
