  • Patent number: 11203065
    Abstract: There is provided a more efficient method for manufacturing a three-dimensional shaped object. The method of the present invention comprises a successive formation of a plurality of solidified layers through a light beam irradiation, wherein the solidified layers are provided by a hybrid of combined systems of an after irradiation system and a simultaneous irradiation system, the after irradiation system being such that the light beam irradiation is performed after a formation of a powder layer, the simultaneous irradiation system being such that the light beam irradiation is performed while a raw material is supplied.

  • Patent number: 10906693
    Abstract: The pull tab portion is formed as an area surrounded by four solid or broken line-formed incisions. The four incisions include a first incision which is formed as a boundary line of the push-in portion, a pair of second incisions each of which is continuous with the first incision and which are spaced apart from each other in the width direction of the adhesive tape, and a third incision which is continuous with each of the pair of second incisions and functions as a folding line. When those ends of the pair of second incisions which are each located opposite to the push-in portion are called tape-side incision ends, the distance between the two tape-side incision ends in the width direction of the adhesive tape is set greater than the width of the adhesive tape.

  • Patent number: 10538021
    Abstract: To provide an injection mold capable of filling a necessary resin material for obtaining a desired molded article in a cavity space of a fine mesh structure, there is provided an injection mold according to an embodiment of the present invention composed of a core mold and a cavity mold, in which a cavity space is formed when the core and cavity molds are in a contact with each other, the cavity space surrounding a plurality of contact areas between the core and cavity molds. In the injection mold according to an embodiment of the present invention, at least one of the core and cavity molds has a through-hole which has an opening in a parting plane of the core and cavity molds and extends from the opening to an outside of the injection mold, the parting plane corresponding to the contact areas between the core and cavity molds.

  • Publication number: 20190001415
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing a three-dimensional shaped object comprising an undercut portion by alternate repetition of a powder-layer forming and a solidified-layer forming, the repetition comprising: (i) forming a solidified layer by irradiating a predetermined portion of a powder layer with a light beam, thereby allowing a sintering of the powder in the predetermined portion or a melting and subsequent solidification of the powder; and (ii) forming another solidified layer by newly forming a powder layer on the formed solidified layer, followed by an irradiation of a predetermined portion of the newly formed powder layer with the light beam. Especially, in the manufacturing method according to an embodiment of the present invention, a modeling process for pre-identifying the undercut portion is performed prior to a performance of the method.
