Summary: A hybrid additive manufacturing method that allows for precise deposition of
various photo curable resins
Description: A hybrid additive manufacturing method that allows for precise deposition of
various photo curable resins without the use of a vat has been developed. This method utilizes
thermoplastics for an exterior shell and structural support, and the resin deposition allows for
stronger parts to be printed more rapidly through hybridization of two additive manufacturing
methods. The hybrid nature greatly expands material compatibilities from strictly
thermoplastics to thermoplastics and any photo curable resin.
Main Advantages of this Invention
 Faster print times
 Extends the range of compatible
materials
 Broader range of part properties
Potential Areas of Application
 3D printing
ID number: 15040
