Title
(EN) CONTINUOUS PULL THREE-DIMENSIONAL PRINTING
(FR) IMPRESSION EN TROIS DIMENSIONS EN TRACTION CONTINUE
Abstract
(EN) Described herein are three-dimensional (3D) printer systems and methods, which may provide for "continuous pull" 3D printing. An illustrative 3D printer includes: a resin container, a base plate, a light source arranged below the resin container and operable to cure resin in the resin container; and a control system operable to: (a) receive model data specifying a 3D structure; (b) determine 2D images corresponding to layers of the 3D object; and (c) generate control signals to operate the light source and the base plate to sequentially form the layers of the 3D object onto the base plate, wherein the base plate moves a formed portion of the 3D object upward after formation of each layer, and wherein at least a surface of a formed portion of the 3D object remains in contact with the resin in the resin container throughout the formation of the layers of the 3D object.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des systèmes des procédés d'imprimante à trois dimensions (3D), qui peuvent fournir une impression 3D en "traction continue". Une imprimante 3D utilisée à titre d'exemple comprend : un récipient de résine, une plaque de base, une source de lumière disposée au-dessous du récipient de résine et permettant de durcir la résine dans le récipient de résine ; et un système de commande conçu pour : (a) recevoir des données de modèle spécifiant une structure 3D ; (b) déterminer des images 2D correspondant à des couches de l'objet 3D ; et (c) générer des signaux de commande pour faire fonctionner la source de lumière et la plaque de base pour former séquentiellement les couches de l'objet 3D sur la plaque de base, la plaque de base déplaçant une partie formée de l'objet 3D vers le haut après la formation de chaque couche, et au moins une surface d'une partie formée de l'objet 3D restant en contact avec la résine dans le récipient de résine pendant l'ensemble du processus de formation des couches de l'objet 3D.
