Abstract

1. ABSTRACT Profiles can be produced fast, cheap and with a high strength, e.g. by extrusion. They can be extended by an interface to fix them to a specific structure. The idea is to add a ALM printed interface attachment to the profile. Needed is a printer with a fixation space where the extruded profile can be introduced and were the gaps are automatically sealed. The printer maybe operable to feature different angles for the extruded profile to be added with the 3D printed interface.

1. ABSTRACT

Profiles can be produced fast, cheap and with a high strength, e.g. by extrusion.They can be extended by an interface to fix them to a specific structure. The idea is to add a ALM printed interface attachment to the profile. Needed is a printer with a fixation space where the extruded profile can be introduced and were the gaps are automatically sealed. The printer maybe operable to feature different angles for the extruded profile to be added with the 3D printed interface.


2. DISCLOSURE

Extruded profiles (see Fig. 1) can be produced fast, cheap and with a high strength.They can be extended by ALM printing resulting in a hybrid part. The idea is to add a printed interface attachment to the extruded profile (see Fig. 4 to 7). Needed is a printer with a fixation space (= machine bed) where the extruded profile can be introduced and were the gaps are automatically sealed (see Fig. 2). In addition the 3D printer maybe operable to fix the profile with a splitted machine bed (see Fig. 3). The printer maybe operable to feature different angles for the extruded profile to be added with the 3D printed interface (see Fig. 2).
