    Abstract: A three-dimensional device is fabricated in a layer-by-layer approach using a support material. The support material is deposited in a liquid form on a surface, hardened by cooling or ultraviolet (UV) curing, and selectively ablated to create an area within which the desired structure of the device will be formed. Active material is deposited into this area, and the layer-by-layer process repeated until the three-dimensional device has been completed. Thereafter, any remaining support material is removed by water or other solvent.

  • Patent number: 9637622
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an acrylate-styrene-acrylonitrile polymer, a method for preparing the same, and a thermoplastic resin composition. More specifically, the present invention has an effect of providing an acrylate-styrene-acrylonitrile polymer, a method for preparing the same, and a thermoplastic resin composition, wherein an N-vinyl monomer is applied such that the polymerization can be initiated by a redox system under conditions in which a grafting agent is not used, thereby improving the grafting efficiency of the acrylate-styrene-acrylonitrile polymer and thus improving powder characteristics and impact resistance while maintaining dye-ability; the content of free shells is lowered to improve the coagulation and latex stability; the polymerization is performed by the redox system without an activation liquid of a shell layer, thereby reducing additives and thus improving pigment dye-ability and significantly improving weather resistance.
