Abstract

With Laminated Object Manufacturing (LQM) process, three dimensional objects are manufactured by sequentially laminating and cUtting two-dimensional cross-sections. The.rnediumused.inLOMprocess isaQhesive-coatedsheet• materials.. As seen in Figure 1, the sheetmateria.l carries the adhesive either on one sideQr both sides, or it cQntains the adhesive ill itself, like woven composite material impregnated with bonding agent. The adhesive,which can be pre-coatedonto>material or be deposited prior to bonding, enables layers of sheet material to be attached to each other so as to construct a three-dimensional object.
