Three-Dimensional Printer Laminating Fusible Sheets
Inventors: Thomas (Rock) Mackie, Brandon Walker, Nathan Schumacher
A 3D printer successively fuses sheet material in a stack to form a three-dimensional object. The sheet material may provide a mesh separating islands of material that will be fused to produce the desired three-dimensional object. The mesh provides support for the island material during the fusing process and may be removed afterwards.
