ENGR3030U Fall 2009 George Platanitis, Ph.D, P.Eng. Overview Began in 1970s, to create physical objects directly from geometric data without traditional tools. Rapid Prototyping – also known as layered manufacturing , 3D printing , desktop manufacturing , and solid freeform manufacturing . Now encompasses applications beyond prototyping (to include manufacturing ).

ENGR3030U Fall 2009 George Platanitis, Ph.D, P.Eng. Overview Three steps: 1) Form cross sections of object to be manufactured 2) Lay cross sections layer by layer 3) Combine layers Only cross-sectional data required to generate physical object.

ENGR3030U Fall 2009 George Platanitis, Ph.D, P.Eng. Step 1 – photosensitive polymer maintained in liquid phase. Step 2 – elevating platform located one layer of thickness below top surface of liquid polymer. Step 3 – UV laser scans polymer layer above platform, solidifies polymer, and gives it required cross-sectional shape. Step 4 – platform lowered onto polymer bath to layer thickness. Liquid polymer flows over part to start next layer. Step 5 – repeat Step 3 and 4 until top layer of part generated. Step 6 – post-curing performed to solidify part completely, where some liquid regions may have remained in each layer. Specific RP&M Processes – Stereo Lithography
