  • Patent number: 11226559
    Abstract: Provided herein is a method of forming a three-dimensional object in which the polymerizable liquid includes a mixture of (i) a light polymerizable first component, and (ii) a heat polymerizable second component; the heat polymerizable second component comprising (i) a first blocked reactive constituent that is blocked with a volatile blocking group, and optionally (ii) a curative. Upon heating a formed three-dimensional intermediate sufficiently, the volatile blocking group is cleaved and vaporizes out of the three-dimensional intermediate, to form the three-dimensional object. Also provided is a three-dimensional object produced by the method. Further provided is a polymerizable liquid composition useful for carrying out the method, and prepolymers and monomers useful for the polymerizable liquid composition.

  • Patent number: 11220101
    Abstract: The invention relates to a drying unit (22) for drying printed substrates (21), comprising a chamber (23) with a gaseous medium which is oxygen-reduced by means of an inert gas, wherein the substrates (21) are guided through the chamber (23) or at least can be guided through the chamber, and the chamber (23) has an entrance for the substrates (21) to be guided into the chamber (23) in the transport direction (T) of the substrates (21). The entrance for the substrates (21) to be guided into the chamber (23) is formed by two cylinders (04; 06) which are positioned against each other longitudinally. The cylinders (04; 06) positioned against each other at the entrance of the chamber (23) form a printing unit (03). One of the cylinders (04) is designed as a printing cylinder (04), and the other cylinder (06) is designed as a cylinder (06) which interacts with the printing cylinder (04) and applies a printed image onto the affected substrates (21).
