Additive manufacturing of optical components is one of the most challenging aspects in rapid prototyping, as optics demands not only excellent surface shape and roughness parameters for the outer geometry of the printed part, but also pose stringent requirements for the homogeneity of the printed bulk material. The paper presents an approach to inkjet print optical volumes, using the specific hybrid polymer ORMOCER and an optimized, multilayer inkjet printing process to achieve shape deviations <20 μm PV, surface roughness in the range of <50 nm and a transparency of the printed bulk volume >95 %.

More about this publication?
  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
