2 Sheet Course: Introduction to Engineering Graphics and Visualization copyright 2009, Georgia Institute of Technology Additional Information Some of the 3D Printer vendors and materials used: Zcorp – Uses a powder, a layer of powder is applied to a surface, and then a binder is applied where the 2D cross section is, and this process is repeated. Powder-based fusion process. A layer of powder is laid down for the 2D section and then a heat source is used to fuse the powder material to each other, building up the part one layer of powder at a time. Wax based model – melted wax is applied one layer at a time through a heated nozzle. 3Dsystems – Uses a liquid plastic which is hardened using a laser beam, one layer at a time. Stratasys – Uses nylon filament line which is melted as it goes through a heated nozzle and applies material one layer at a time. (this is the type of machine we use in this class.)
