Abstract : The grant covered funding for three International Solid Freeform Fabrication Symposia, held at The University of Texas at Austin in August of 2010, 2011 and 2012. The Symposia were organized in a manner to allow the multidisciplinary nature of the SFF research to be presented coherently, with various sessions emphasizing computer interfacing and modeling, machine and process development and materials and materials processing for SFF. The three-day event was completely composed of individual oral presentations to accommodate the demand for this dissemination format. The parallel sessions were split into three sessions to meet demand, and a poster session allowed researchers to present in this format. We believe that documenting the changing state of the art in additive manufacturing as represented by the meeting proceedings serves both the people presently involved in this fruitful technical area as well as the flux of new researchers and users entering the field.
