What is selective deposition lamination?

Leslie's Blog

The ASTM standards organization has a definition for sheet lamination– an additive manufacturing process in which sheets of material are bonded to form an object. 3D printing /additive manufacturing continues to evolve, so there are several variations on lamination. Sheet lamination is the use of sheets of some material that are bound with a glue or fused with an electrical process to form an object.

Sheet lamination—an additive manufacturing process in which sheets of material are bonded to form a part. Standard terminology for additive manufacturing and 3D printing is critical when communicating. It puts everyone on the “same page” and more accurately conveys thoughts and ideas when conversing, presenting, and publishing. Ignoring terminology standards and using whatever terms you prefer can cause confusion or worse.

Can you weld wood? it looks like you can. It can be done by applying friction and mechanical vibration in what is known as friction welding. The cellulose and lignin in wood melt at some 180 C and bond together forming a welded seam. The weld seam has a simillar strength to glued one.

Additive or Subtractive Manufacturing: Which is Better?

By providing CAD-embedded visual feedback, SOLIDWORKS Simulation enables you to easily define the arrangement of plies, thicknesses, material properties, and orientations for laminates or sandwich composites. Weight and performance are driving factors in many designs. As a result, engineers are turning to composite materials to minimize weight and tailor stiffness, but how you determine the material’s effect on product behavior?
