Abstract

The previous two chapters have described two very widely used laser-based RP processes: stereolithography (SL), and selective laser sintering (SLS). This chapter moves on to other processes of major interest to RP practitioners as well as researchers. Lasers play a critical role in some of the processes to be described. These are discussed first. The rest of the chapter is devoted to RP processes not necessarily dependent on the use of a laser.
