The Finishing Of Stereolithography Models Using Resin Based Coatings
The use of StereoLithography (SL) can produce accurate prototype models with complex internal and external features. However, a major problem to commercial use is the poor surface finish caused mainly by 'stair stepping' ...
The Production of Electrical Discharge Machining Electrodes Using SLS: Preliminary Results
Electrical discharge machining (EDM) has become common place in the tool and die industry as an alternative to conventional machining and now accounts for 2% ofworldwide machiningl , with a substantially greater ...
Support Generation for Fused Deposition Modeling
With the growth of the use of Rapid Prototyping (RP) systems, there has been a corresponding growth in the complexity of parts expected from the various RP processes. To meet the demand for increasingly more intricate ...
Optimizing Part Quality with Orientation
The orientation of SFF-manufactured parts can have a significant effect on the quality of the parts, in both surface effects and strength. Currently, orientation is either ignored or set on the basis of experience. This ...
Accuracy of Stereolithography Parts: Mechanism and Modes of Distortion for a "Letter-H" Diagnostic Part
Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing (RP&M) users need to compare the accuracy of various commercially available RP&M materials and processes. A good diagnostic test for both material and the fabrication process involves ...
