The Influence of Residual Toner Charge on 3D Laser Printed Objects
Abstract:The recent advances in digital fabrication have nearly become synonymous with the formulation of functional inks and inkjet printing. Conversely, dry toner systems, despite their high productivity and maturity in 2D digital printing, have scarcely been utilized for 3D printing and digital fabrication, despite significant endeavor.
This paper reviews the advantages that laser printing offers digital fabrication (over inkjet) and provides insights to overcome the technical barriers which to date have prevented it from gaining traction as a 3D printing technique.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
