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' ...
Photoelastic Investigation Using New STL-Resins
Stereolithography is not only ideal to study the function and the design of a simple or complex component, but also for stress and strain analysis by means of photoelasticity. The basis for using Stereolithograpy components ...
Linear Shrinkage Of Stereolithography Resins
The linear shrinkage of an acrylate and an epoxy based stereolithography resin was measured during cure. A helium-cadmium (He-Cd) laser cured strands of resin as is done in the stereolithography process using two exposures. ...
Application of Stereolithography in the Fabrication of Rehabilitation Aids
Free form fabrication methods have a great potential to significantly improve the design and manufacture of equipment for people with physical disabilities, such as quadriplegia through spinal cord injury, arthrogryposis, ...
A Phenomenological Numerical Model For Fused Deposition Processing of Particle Filled Parts
Fused Deposition ModelingTM utilizes the simple idea of melting, extrusion and resolidification of thermoplastic filaments. The introduction of particulate materials, especially ceramics and metals, will widen the range ...
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 ...
