Laser polishing of thermoplastics fabricated using fused deposition modelling

Chai, Yuan; Li, Rachel; Perriman, Diana; Chen, Song; Qin, Qing Hua; Smith, Paul


Fused deposition modelling (FDM) is a technique of additive manufacturing (AM) which is capable of fast construction of plastic prototypes. AM technology has been utilised in orthopaedics and traumatology to fabricate patient-specific models, surgical guides, and implants. However, the layering build-up by FDM usually generates a deleterious rough surface that limits its application to items such as surgical guide and surgical operating guide, because these items require a highly resolved...[Show more]
