5-Axes Synchronous Motion 3D Printing Equipment for Digital Manufacturing Applications

The objective of this research is to present the development of 3D digital manufacturing through

synchronous 5-axes printing for greatly enhancing the strength of the printed parts. In this research, we developed the algorithms for synchronous five axes printing based on the surfaceprinting trajectory to overcome the traditional lack of strength issue. Five axes printing can achievethe goal of printing in different orientations so that the strength of the printed parts is greatly enhancedin comparison with the printing in a fixed direction only. The five axes synchronous 3D printing has beensuccessfully demonstrated in physical printing includingnon-supporting structure printing.
