Abstract

As shown in Figure 1, a printer 10, for example an ink jet, bubble jet, thermal ink jet or electrophotographic printer is driven by a Computer Aided Design (CAD) station 12. The printer 10 is utilized to produce copies 14 of slices of the design displayed at the CAD station 12. As shown in Figure 2, the copies 14 are laminated together, one at a time using a cyanoacrylate type resin. The excess paper and resin is then trimmed off using laser technology. The completed part is used as a model for further design or prototype needs.

FIG.2

As shown in Figure 1, a printer 10, for example an ink jet, bubble jet, thermal ink jet or electrophotographic printer is driven by a Computer Aided Design (CAD) station 12. The printer 10 is utilized to produce copies 14 of slices of the design displayed at the CAD station 12. As shown in Figure 2, the copies 14 are laminated together, one at a time using a cyanoacrylate type resin. The excess paper and resin is then trimmed off using laser technology. The completed part is used as a model for further design or prototype needs.

Refering again to Figure 1, the CAD station 12 includes a three dimensional design fie that sends a signal to the printer 10 for each sliced configuration in increments compatible
