Solid Freeform Fabrication of Functional Ceramic Components Using a Laminated Object Manufacturing Technique
Lone Peak Engineering (LPE) has demonstrated the feasibility ofusing solid freeform fabrication to prepare advanced structural ceramics using a laminated object manufacturing (LOM) technique. High purity, high density ...
Rapid Prototyping: A Global View
Rapid prototyping technology is advancing at a tremendous rate. Much of this progress is due to research being conducted within academic institutions and industry throughout the world. The USA is leading the research ...
Surface Texture by 3D Printing
Three Dimensional Printing is a solid freeform fabrication process which creates parts directly from a computer model by depositing in layers. Each layer is created by depositing powder and selectively joining the powder ...
Adaptive Slicing of Solid Freeform Fabrication Processes
The Solid Freeform Fabrication (SFF) process significantly reduces part specific setup manufacturing lead time. This process has been primarily used in fabricating prototypes for design visualization and verification. ...
Selective Laser Sintering of Alumina-Boron Oxide Composites
The selection of an optimum composite system for selective laser sintering (SLS) is based on materials properties such as the melting point and the wettability between the components in the composite powder. The alumina-boron ...
Manufacture Of Injection Molds Using SLS
This paper describes the use of SLS technology for the fabrication of injection mold cavities. Green shapes were made from metal - copolymer powder mixtures by SLS. The copolymer was gradually burnt out and the metal was ...
