Abstract

Additive manufacturing (AM) is a new variant of manufacturing processes where in the part is built by adding material layer by layer. Many AM processes are being used today and Polyjet process is one of them. Polyjet process used two heads; one dispenses the model material, while the other prints support material. The support material is then washed away easily. The process yields extremely good accuracy, allowing the machines to be used in the jewelry industry. This paper brings in site to the Polyjet technology, it's advantages and limitations. Additionally information on 3D printers based on Polyjet process has also been touched upon.
