Title (EN) RAPID PROTOTYPING SYSTEM WITH CONTROLLED MATERIAL FEEDSTOCK
(FR) SYSTEME DE PROTOTYPAGE RAPIDE A ALIMENTATION DE MATIERE PREMIERE COMMANDEE
Abstract:
(EN) A deposition modeling system incorporates a drive mechanism (10) to feed a strand offilament (38) to create a model. The drive mechanism (10) comprises a pivot block (16) that is rotatably connected to a fixed block (14) and a motor (12) that rotates a drive shaft (46). A drive roller (26) is connected to the drive shaft (46) and an idler roller (30) is connected to an idler axle (32) that extends from the pivot block (16) in a substantially perpendicular direction to the direction of rotation of the pivot block (16) with respect to the fixed block (14) and in a substantially parallel direction to the drive shaft (46).
(FR) L'invention concerne un système de modélisation de dépôt qui comprend un mécanisme d'alimentation (10) conçu pour amener un brin de filament (38) utilisé pour la création d'un modèle. Le mécanisme d'alimentation (10) comprend un bloc pivot (16) connecté rotatif à un bloc fixe (14) et un moteur (12) qui fait tourner un arbre d'entraînement (46). Un cylindre d'entraînement (26) est connecté à l'arbre d'entraînement (46) et un cylindre non commandé (30) est connecté à un axe non commandé (32) qui s'étend depuis le bloc pivot (16) dans un sens sensiblement perpendiculaire au sens de rotation du bloc pivot (16) par rapport au bloc fixe (14) et dans un sens sensiblement parallèle à l'arbre d'entraînement (46).
