3D Printing

  1. 1. 3D Printing By Deepak A S JLAJEAN020 JCET, Palakkad
  2. 2. What is 3D Printing?  3D printing is a process of making a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from a digital model.  Also known as Additive Manufacturing or Rapid Prototyping.  It is an additive process where materials are laid down as layer by layer in different shapes of thickness ranging from 0.0254mm to 1mm to make 3D objects.  This technology uses a 3D Printing machine connected to a computer containing digital image/data of the object (to be printed) for the printing purpose.
  3. 3. History  1984-The technology for printing physical 3D objects from digital data(Stereo lithography) was first developed by Charles Hull.  1986 - Charles Hull founded 3D Systems and developed the first commercial 3D Printing machine, it was called as Stereolithography Apparatus.  1988 - Scott Crump invented Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM).  1993 - Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) patented "3 Dimensional Printing techniques".

  6. 6. Types of Printing  Stereolithography: It is an additive manufacturing process using liquid UV-curable photopolymer “resin” and a UV laser to build parts a layer at a time.  Fused deposition modeling (FDM): It is an additive manufacturing which uses hot semi-liquid extrude directly to print objects.  Laminated object manufacturing(LOM) : In this, layers of adhesive- coated paper, plastic or metal laminates are successively glued together and cut to shape with a knife or laser cutter.  Selective laser sintering (SLS): an additive manufacturing technique that uses a high power laser (eg:-, CO2 laser) to fuse small particles of plastic, metal , ceramic or glass powders into a mass that has a desired 3-dimensional shape.

  13. 13. Advantages • No need of cutting, turning, grinding and drilling etc. • Reduced material wastage. • Saves time & cost. • High surface finish ,precision, quality & strength. • Physical objects of any shape , dimension & complex structure can be made. • No skilled operator is required.
  14. 14. R&D • Auto parts: parts of "Formula 1" car engines, are made by direct laser sintering of metal. • Aircraft parts: F-18 (fighter aircraft) tube for the control system environment. • Research on printing human organs. • 3D Printer Transforms Moon Dirt(Regolith)Into Lunar Base: ESA Project. • Using 3-D Printing Tech, British Airbus Engineers Aim to Print Out an Entire Aircraft Wing. • Merlin Project:Rolls Royce is going to 3D print aircraft engine parts. • Food printer: MIT project to print food recipe’s using food cartridges. • 3D Concrete Printing: A one tone reinforced concrete architectural piece has been produced using this.
