  • Patent number: 11052609
    Abstract: A molding system to manufacture a three-dimensional object corresponding to a three-dimensional model. The molding apparatus includes a slice data generation unit to generate slice data from three-dimensional shape data of the three-dimensional model, and a lamination unit to laminate a layer of a molding material on the basis of the slice data. The slice data generation unit analyzes data, and, if a region in which a layer of a second molding material different from a first molding material is to be laminated on a layer of the first molding material and in which it is difficult to laminate the layers is extracted, modifies the data of a region of at least one of an ith layer and an (i+1)th layer to data in which a portion in which the first molding material is disposed and a portion in which the second molding material is disposed.

  • Patent number: 10859935
    Abstract: A toner includes toner particle containing at least a strontium titanate particle on the surface of the toner particle, and the toner is a water-washed toner from which strontium titanate particle desorbable by water washing are removed by water washing. The water-washed toner contains the strontium titanate particle having a number average particle diameter of primary particle (D1) of 10 nm or more and 150 nm or less, and when the distribution of an Sr element in the water-washed toner in the depth direction is determined, (i) the Sr element abundance on the outermost surface x satisfying 0.00<x?0.80, and (ii) the difference between x and xp “xp?x” satisfying 0.00<xp?x?0.95, where xp is the maximum peak value (atomic %) of the Sr element abundance in the region from the outermost surface to 50 nm.

  • Patent number: 10357956
    Abstract: A shaping apparatus includes a storage section that stores in advance a first relationship between a temperature of a shaping material and a heating time at a time at which oxidation of the shaping material starts as the shaping material is heated; and a control section that estimates a timing at which the oxidation of a material layer starts, based on an acquisition result from a temperature acquisition section, a measurement result from a time measurement section, and the first relationship stored in the storage section when the material layer on a conveyance body is preheated by a preheating section, and reduces a front surface temperature of the material layer on the conveyance body before the oxidation of the material layer starts.

  • Publication number: 20190056688
    Abstract: Occurrence of layering defects is suppressed in a layering forming method where material layers on a conveyance member are heated and layered. A forming apparatus 1 configured to sequentially layer a plurality of material layers and form a three-dimensional object includes a stage having a forming face on which the material layers are layered, a conveyance member configured to support and convey the material layers to a layering position facing the forming face, and a heating member configured to nip the material layers between itself and the forming face of the stage at the layering position, and pressurize and heat the material layer. When a heating region of the heating member is perpendicularly projected onto a plane where a supporting face at which the conveyance member supports the material layer exists, a projection plane of the heating region has extending regions that extend further to the outer side from both edges of the supporting face, on both edges of the projection plane of the heating region.
