Title:
ADDITIVE PRINTING APPARATUS AND METHOD EMPLOYING LIQUID BRIDGE
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2017/075370
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
An additive printing apparatus includes a light transmissive substrate, a light source adapted to direct light through the light transmissive substrate, a photopolymerizable material source providing photopolymerizable material, and a fluid path from the photopolymerizable material source to a delivery position proximate the light transmissive substrate. Material is delivered through the fluid path the delivery position to form a liquid bridge of the photopolymerizable material, the liquid bridge having an area of contact with the light transmissive substrate, such that, in a method of additive printing, photopolymerizing light can be shone through the light transmissive substrate to polymerize the photopolymerizable material.
