Composite & Additive Manufacturing (CAM) Lab was established in 2018, founded by Prof. Kun (Kelvin) Fu at University of Delaware. CAM lab is focusing on novel materials, architectures, and system design and development for addressing the societal challenges in energy, health, and security!

 

 

 

Following lists what "we can":

We can do 3D manufacturing:

This logo is designed for CAM lab, which means 3D printing is manipulated by human intelligence. The human is transformed from a swallow bird. We believe that nests built by smart swallow birds using clay, grass, leather, and small branches could be considered as the earliest and smartest composite and “3D printed” objects.
