Multiphase Jet Solidification - a new process towards metal prototypes and a new data interface
The production of metallic and ceramic parts with RP technologies is requested. Multiphase Jet Solidification (MJS) is a process which reveals good results to develop a commercial system due to this task. Low viscous materials (liquefied substances or powder-binder~pastes) are extruded through an x-y-z~ontrolled jet and parts of different materials e.g. stainless steel are fabricated layer by layer up to the final extension. basic principle of the process and the current results will be presented. A slice format was designed for MJS, but it is also usable for other technologies. The is development of a general slice interface for RP.
