Abstract: In this work, the authors propose a multifunctional additive manufacturing solution that integrates dual-material fused deposition modeling 3-D printing and selective electroless plating
. Nickel alloy film can be selectively plated on 3-D printed free-form plastic structures.
After electroless plating
for 40 min, the PIs were electroplated with copper at room temperature with a current density of 0.03 A/[cm.sup.2] for 1 h.
In the electroless plating
process, the carbon fibers would be soaked into a plating solution containing molten salt to absorb the [Ni.sup.2+] ions.

The catalyst is immersed in a electroless plating
solution(*3) with whatever metal that has been selected for the specific application to form fine electronic circuitry patterns made of various metals with a wire width of 5 um (a micrometer is one-millionth of a meter).
It is commonly achieved through the electroless plating

The electroless plating
of silver were carried out in a glass beaker containing 15 [cm.sup.3] ionic liquids at room temperature (typically 25~30[degrees]C) onto copper (50 x 10 x 0.2 [mm.sup.3]) or mild steel (50 x 10 x 0.2 [mm.sup.3]) substrates.
LDS involves molding a special additive into the plastic, which is activated by a laser beam so that when the plastic is subsequently exposed to an electroless plating
bath, the metal adheres only to the activated additive.
