Title: THREE DIMENSIONAL PRINTING SYSTEM WITH IMPROVED MACHINE ARCHITECTURE
Abstract:
A three dimensional printing system (2) includes a vertical support (4), a support plate (10), a resin vessel (20), a carriage (40), and a support fixture (48). The support plate has a proximal end (12) affixed to the vertical support and extends along a first lateral axis to a distal end (14). The resin vessel is supported by the support plate and has a rear side (22) that is proximate to the proximal end of the support plate. A resin fluid outlet (30) is supported over the rear side of the resin vessel. The carriage is configured to be translated vertically along the vertical support. A pair of fixture receiving arms (46) extend from the carriage along the first lateral axis from a proximal to a distal end. The fixture receiving arms are spaced apart along a second lateral axis that is perpendicular to the first lateral axis. A support fixture (48) is supported by the two fixture receiving arms.
