AAMP UP- In-situ Diagnosis of Additive Manufacturing with 3D Vision Sensor 

This project is part of the AAMP-UP '22 program, which focuses on energetic material research.
AAMP-UP is separate but highly partnered with SURF.

The project is run by Dr. Song Zhang and his team. The research aims at designing a 3D printer that can incorporate a high-end customized 3D vision sensor for close-loop controls. Undergrads will closely work with graduate students on both software and/or hardware development depending upon interest.
