Stereolithography: Materials, Processes and Applications focuses on recent advances in stereolithography, covering aspects related to the fabrication processes, materials, and computer simulations used in the field. Processes like two-photon polymerization, micro-stereolithography, infrared stereolithography and stereo-thermal-lithography are discussed at length. The book also describes the use of materials such as novel resins, hydrogels for medical applications and highly reinforced resins with ceramics and metals. The volume also: Includes a comprehensive discussion on fabrication strategies and how to choose the right one Describes hands-on applications from the automotive, medical and archeology fields Computer simulations and applications are provided Stereolithography: Materials, Processes and Applications brings together contributions from leaders in the field in one comprehensive reference volume, and would be invaluable for researchers and engineers working in the field.
