Description

Rapid prototyping (RP) technology has advanced in various application areas such as verification of design and functional test. Recently, a number of researchers have applied biomaterials to fabricate functional bio RP parts. In this research, a nano-composite deposition system (NCDS) was developed and appliced to fabricate three-dimensional functional composite parts. NCDS uses biocompatible or biodegradable polymer resins as matrix and various bioceramics to form biocomposite materials. The fabrication process of NCDS adopts a hybrid system in which material removal process by mechanical micromachining and the deposition process of typical RP are combined. Authors: W.S. Chu, H.J.
