Abstract:The rapid manufacture of complex three-dimensional components has eluded researchers for decades. Several manufacturing options have been limited by either speed or the ability to fabricate true three-dimensional structures. Over the last decade, projection stereolithography has been developed to manufacture true three-dimensional structures in a faster manner than traditional processes. This work discusses the development of a projection stereolithography system and the different process parameters that affect part quality. A functional system has been created at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and several unique components have been fabricated to demonstrate its capabilities. Examples of true three-dimensional structures and tunable porous materials are presented.
