This Navy STTR Phase I proposal presents an parallel AM tool to eliminate conventional scanning strategy. A 2D MEMS array is used to shape both in time domain and spatial domain to obtain the desired pattern for layer by layer process. Modeling is used to study in-process melting evolution versus powder and beam properties. It provides quantitative characterization of the AM system to guide the design. A simulation and proof of concept demonstration will be carried out at the end of Phase I. Prototypes will be demonstrated in AM system at the end of Phase II.
