Example text

This is similar to conventional 2D printing where each line deposits a different material in different locations within a layer. The recent Connex process using the Polyjet technology from Stratasys is a good example of this where it is now possible to create parts with different material properties in a single step using this approach. Color 3D Printing is possible using multiple 1D arrays with ink or separately colored material in each. Note however that the part coloration in the sheet laminating Mcor process [15] is separated from the layer formation process, which is why it is defined as a 1D channel approach.

Part e. was fabricated in an Mcor Technologies sheet lamination machine that has ink-jet printing capability for the multiple colors (Chap. 9). Parts f. and g. were fabricated using material extrusion (Chap. 6). Part f. is a ratchet mechanism that was fabricated in a single build in an industrial machine. Again, the working mechanism is achieved through proper joint designs and dissolvable support structure. Part g. was fabricated in a low-cost, personal machine (that one of the authors has at home).

It could be argued that high-speed CNC would have developed anyway, but some have argued that the perceived threat from AM technology caused CNC machining vendors to rethink how their machines were made. The development of hybrid prototyping technologies, such as Space Puzzle Molding that use both high-speed machining and additive techniques for making large, complex and durable molds and components, as shown in Fig. 4 [9], illustrate how the two can be used interchangeably to take advantage of the benefits of both technologies.
