3D Printing

3D printing involves building a model in a container filled with powder of either starch or plaster based material, that’s been used to support the deposited material for the object itself.

An inkjet-like print head shuttles apply a small amount of binder to form a layer. Upon application of the binder, a new layer of powder is sweeping over the prior layer with the application of more binder.

The process repeats this procedure until the model is complete. As the model is supported by loose powder there is no need for support. Additionally, this is the only process that builds in colours.

3D Printing of Optics

3D Printing of Optics - A Publication by Andreas Heinrich and Manuel Rank In comparison to conventional manufacturing technologies, in additive manufacturing, the material is deposited additively rather than removed by the use of a subtractive milling or grinding process. Meanwhile, various kinds of 3D printing methods are used, which are mainly implemented for mechanical [...]
