Title

Kinetic Monte Carlo as a Model for Microscale 3D Printing

Abstract

 

While 3D printing is typically done at coarse scales, there is an ever-increasing interest in printing materials at the micro- and nanoscale levels. At these scales, the same modelling methods used for coarse scales becomes less effective due to atomistic effects. We demonstrate the use of the Kinetic Monte Carlo (KMC) method as a 3D printing model that incorporates the appropriate effects.
