  • Additive Manufacturing Case Study

    The usage of Additive Manufacturing is rising with an increasing rate. Instead of molding, casting, or machining products and its parts out of the piece of metal or plastic, larger than product, with Additive Manufacturing they are “printed”. Printing done by devices that build up very thin layers of metal or plastic, where layers, used to produce an object, could be smaller than the diameter of a human hair (Dupin 2015). Additive Manufacturing (AM) and 3D printing are the two terms, which are used interchangeably. 3D printing is a quickly growing type of technology that dangers conventional manufacturing processes (Seally 2012). Moreover, according to Forrest and Cao (2013, 66) “additive manufacturing is as a key driver behind the on-going…

  • The Physics Of 3D Printing

    Most Americans think of manufacturing as something that happens very far away. They believe that it has nothing to do with them, they are simply the consumer of the end product. Three-dimensional (3D) printing is drastically different from all current models of production and it is starting to blur the line between consumers and producers (Finocchiaro). This new technology allows physical products to be printed as easily as words can be printed on a piece of paper and is rapidly becoming more…

  • An Analysis Of Pin Hole Camera Model

    \chapter{Multiview Geometry} This chapter deals with the camera models, projection of scene into image plane and two view geometry. \section{Pin Hole Camera Model} A camera is a mapping between the 3D world (object space) and a 2D image. The principal camera of interest in this thesis is central projection. This describes about Pin Hole camera model which are matrices with particular properties that represent the camera mapping.\\ \begin{figure}[h] \includegraphics[scale =…

  • The History Of 3D Animation

    Animation is the process of making the vison of motion and the figment of change by different means such as, fast moving display of images that follow upon one another and that do only have small changes to them to form an animation. Animators are artists that specialize in the creation of animation. There are a few different creation methods in animation, Traditional animation, Stop-motion animation, Computer animation, 2D animation, 3D animation. Traditional animation (Cel Animation) - The…

  • Digital Painting Advantages And Disadvantages

    1.0 Introduction: Digital Painting is a method of creating an art object (painting) digitally and/or a technique for making digital art in the computer. It adapts traditional painting mediums such as acrylic paint, oils, ink, watercolor, and so on. As a technique, it refers to a computer graphics software program that uses a virtual canvas and virtual painting box of brushes, colors and other supplies. The virtualbox contains many instruments that do not exist in the world, and which give a…

  • The Pros And Cons Of 3D Printing

    Additive manufacturing technology, more commonly known as 3D printing, is everywhere in the news! Innovations made possible by 3D printers are changing the world and propelling society into the future. With this technology, it is possible for anyone to make anything. 3D printers are ushering a new industrial age, but the current US patent system is restricting its potential. The Federal government of the United States is questioning the legality of additive manufacturing and considers it…

  • 3d Printing Essay

    3D Printing and the Additive Manufacturing Process Additive manufacturing (AM) is a process where an object is created by adding layer-upon-layer of material. This basic process requires the use of a computer, CAD software, the material(s) and the appropriate machine to fabricate the end result. AM has been used in many applications. At first, it was used in Rapid Prototyping (RP). Today, AM is used to create end-products used in many different applications, from aerospace, automotive and…

  • The Importance Of Optical Linear Encoder

    The two main types of 3D printing are FDM and SLA. FDM stands for Fused Deposition Modeling, in FDM a thermoplastic resin, usually in the form of a wire (Figure 7), is fed through a hot extruder in turn heating the plastic allowing it to become formable. As the plastic is heated it is precisely placed by the printer head. The melted plastic is placed layer by layer to create a detailed model. There are also SLA printers. SLA stands for stereo lithography. Similar to FDM, SLA uses an additive…

  • 3d Printing Case Study

    When you or someone can recreate your idea into a 3d image called a CAD (Computer-aided Design) file. From the CAD file, it’s converted to a STL (Standard Tessellation Language) file. Then it’s transferred over to a 3d printer, which can print your idea in many different ways depending on what type of 3d printer is being used. There is a very diverse selection for types of additive manufacturing. Several different materials you can print with exist too, and more materials are getting the road…
