Fine lattice structures fabricated by extrusion freeforming: Process variables.
J MATER PROCESS TECH
4654 - 4661.
This paper describes the main factors affecting the rapid prototyping of fine lattices by extrusion freeforming of powder, notably equipment accuracy, paste preparation, extrusion and post-processing and their effects on filament deposition and the defects that might be caused. Effective methods were devised in order to reduce the incidence of these defects. The results provide guidance for fabrication of very fine lattices from powder extrusion (comprising <100 mu m diameter filaments) and improvement of sample quality. (C) 2008 Elsevier B.V.
