Title: FORMING APPARATUS, THREE-DIMENSIONAL FORMING METHOD, AND OBJECT FORMED BY USING THE METHOD
Abstract:
A forming apparatus (1000), for forming a three-dimensional object by using a forming material, includes a layer forming unit (1) that forms a layer by using the forming material; a transport member (14,30) that transports the layer formed by the layer forming unit, a heating unit (40) that heats the layer supported by the transport member; a pressing unit (41) that presses the layer when the layer is heated by the heating unit or after the layer has been heated by the heating unit; and a stacking unit (3) that stacks the layer pressed by the pressing unit at a stacking position. The forming apparatus is configured so that a temperature of the pressing unit in contact with the layer is lower than a temperature of the transport member.
