Hello everyone, I am currently researching the feasibility of applying AM in production of fiber optic cables. Currently it is quite labour intensive, and automation provided by the 3d printers would drastically lower the costs, which is quite vital in our 5G rollout era. I am thinking of using industrial SLS printers and would experiment with turning Silicon dioxide (i.e. powder form) into fiber optics (core & cladding). Also, a DLP 3D Printer could be used, I am still deciding at the moment. I am quite eager to learn, so I would love your feedback on this idea!
