A novel RP process, the semi-automatic VLM-STA process, has been developed to improve building efficiency of the process and the human dependency of the part. The objective of this work is to propose a VLM-STA process and to develop an apparatus for implementation of the process. The VLM-STA process and its apparatus have various technical novelties such as two-step cutting using a rotating table, an automatic stacking method using two pilot holes and two reference shapes, the concept of an automated unit-shape layer (AUSL) and automatic bonding using the bonding roller and building magazine.
