by ink-jet printing of a blinder material  2 . where the part is to be form.3 DIMENSIONAL PRINTING  Principle of 3D Printing (3DP)  3DP was invented by MIT in 1994 Parts are created by a layered printing process and adhesive bonding. The powder layer is selectively joined. based on sliced cross section data. A layer is created by adding another layer of powder.

causing particles to adhere to each other 3 .3 DIMENSIONAL PRINTING  Process of 3DP The process of 3DP is more efficient and relatively cheaper than sintering types. Step 1 -Platform is located at the height necessary for a layer of ceramic powder to be deposited Step 2 -The layer of ceramic powder is selectively raster-scanned with a print head that delivers a liquid binder.

3 DIMENSIONAL PRINTING  Process of 3DP Step 3 -The platform is lowered by the layer thickness to permit a new layer of powder to be deposited. conforming it to the shape of the next upper cross section and adhering it to the previous layer 4 . Step 4 -The new layer is scanned.

3 DIMENSIONAL PRINTING  Process of 3DP Step 5 .Repeat 3 and 4 until the top layer of the part is generated. Step 6 . 5 .A post-process heat treatment is applied to solidify the part.

3D Printing – What now?  Software  3DS Max  Blender  Google Sketch Up  NetFabb Studio  Mesh Lab  Autodesk 123D .


Fast process speed 4.SHR (Single Head Replacement) 8.Smooth surface finish 5.Wide range of materials 6.High accuracy 3.ADVANTAGES 1.Safe and clean process .Easy usage 7.High Quality 2.

Wastage : The washed away supported material can not be reused. It leads to additional cost  .Disadvantages  Post processing : A water jet is required to wash away the support material.
