(FR) APPAREIL, SYSTEMES ET PROCEDES UTILISES DANS L'IMPRESSION TRIDIMENSIONNELLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Apparatus, systems and methods for use in three-dimensional printing are shown and described. Various embodiments of the invention allow for more precise and controlled delivery of heat to achieve interlayer drying; isolation of the working region from the outside for reasons of cleanliness and in connection with the vapors of organic solvents; better control of the temperature of the working region; better accuracy in the flowrates of binder fluid dispensed; matching of delivered flowrates for multiple dispensers; verification of delivered flowrate or drops; provision for easier changeover of the machine from one powder to another; cleanability; and other needs.
(FR)L'invention concerne un appareil, des systèmes et des procédés utilisés dans l'impression tridimensionnelle. Divers modes de réalisation de l'invention permettent une diffusion de chaleur en vue de réaliser le séchage intercouche de façon plus précise et contrôlée; l'isolation d'une zone de travail de l'extérieur pour des raisons de propreté et en relation avec des vapeurs de solvants organiques; un meilleur contrôle de la température de la zone de travail; une plus grande précision dans le débit d'un fluide liant réparti; l'adaptation de débit délivré pour plusieurs dispositifs de diffusion; la vérification de débit délivré ou de gouttelettes; la provision d'un changement plus aisé de machine d'une poudre à une autre; la propreté ainsi que d'autres exigences.
