Title (EN) USES OF SUPPORT MATERIAL IN SOLID FREEFORM FABRICATION SYSTEMS
(FR) UTILISATION D'UN MATERIAU SUPPORT DANS DES SYSTEMES DE FABRICATION SOLIDES A FORME LIBRE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention is drawn to solid freeform fabrication systems and methods for producing three-dimensional objects. The system can include build material (14) configured to be deposited in layers to form a three-dimensional object; and support material (16) configured to be deposited adjacent to the build material for supporting the build mataerial during formation of the three-dimensional object. The support material can also be configured to form a feature (18) that imparts a predetermined proeprty within the three-dimensional object.
(FR)L'invention concerne des systèmes de fabrication solides à forme libre, ainsi que des procédés de production d'objets tridimensionnels. Le système peut comprendre un matériau de construction (14) configuré pour être déposé en couches, de manière à former un objet tridimensionnel ; et un matériau support (16) configuré pour être déposé adjacent au matériau de construction, durant la formation de l'objet tridimensionnel. Le matériau support peut également être configuré pour former une structure (18) en mesure d'impartir une propriété prédéterminée au sein de l'objet tridimensionnel.
