Introduction and basic principles -- Development of AM technology -- Generalized AM process chain -- Photopolymerisation processes -- Powder bed fusion processes -- Extrusion based systems -- Printing processes -- Sheet lamination processes -- Beam deposition processes -- Direct write technologies -- Low-cost AM technologies -- Guidelines for process selection -- Post-processing -- Software issues for AM -- AM Standards -- Multiple materials in AM -- Direct Digital Manufacturing -- Design for AM -- Rapid tooling -- Medical applications for AM -- Aerospace applications for AM -- Automotive applications for AM -- Business opportunities and future directions
Summary: This book covers in detail the various aspects of joining materials to form parts. A conceptual overview of rapid prototyping and layered manufacturing is given, beginning with the fundamentals so that readers can get up to speed quickly. Unusual and emerging applications such as micro-scale manufacturing, medical applications, aerospace, and rapid manufacturing are also discussed. This book provides a comprehensive overview of rapid prototyping technologies as well as support technologies such as software systems, vacuum casting, investment casting, plating, infiltration and other systems. This book also: Reflects recent developments and trends and adheres to the ASTM, SI, and other standards Includes chapters on automotive technology, aerospace technology and low-cost AM technologies Provides a broad range of technical questions to ensure comprehensive understanding of the concepts covered
