Optical Materials for Printing Glass Optics
This technology uses a liquid, solvent-free, silica precursor, and two-photon 3D printing process for high-precision glass micro-optics. Background: Inorganic glasses are widely used in industry due to their excellent optical, chemical, and thermal properties. Conventional grinding and polishing methods are the current standard for fabricating spherical,...

Improved Fused Filament Deposition 3D Printing Using Filaments Coated With Thermoreversible Thermosets
This invention demonstrates a new polymer to coat the spool of thermoplastic filament used in fused deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printing with a thermoreversible thermoset. The goal is to provide a layer that will liquefy in the hot printer nozzle to produce a lower viscosity liquid polymer. This coats the melted filament and increases the wetting and...
