Three dimensional printing apparatus and method for controlling printing head thereof

A three-dimensional printing apparatus and a method for controlling printing head thereof are provided. The method is used for controlling a moving path of a printing head of the three-dimensional printing apparatus and the method includes following steps. The printing head is controlled to form a layer object on a carrying surface according to three-dimensional model information. It is determined whether a cross-section parameter of the layer object is match to a small range condition. If the cross-section parameter of the layer object is match to the small range condition, the printing head is controlled to move toward a first direction far away from layer object according to position information of the layer object. The printing head is controlled to move toward a second direction close to the layer object.

Three-dimensional printing apparatus

A three-dimensional printing apparatus including a base, a printing unit, and a control unit is provided for forming a three-dimensional object on a forming area layer by layer with a material. The base has a body and a moving member assembled therein. The forming area covers the moving member. The control unit is electrically connected to the moving member and the printing unit. The printing unit is controlled by the control unit, wherein after the three-dimensional object is formed, the moving member is controlled by the control unit to move relative to the body, such that at least a portion of the three-dimensional object is detached from the moving member.

Method for printing surfaces of three-dimensional objects and three-dimensional objects having print


The invention relates to a method for printing surface of three-dimensional objects (2), in particular having a cylindrical or curved surface such as bottles or cans, by means of inkjet print heads, and to a three-dimensional object (2) having a corresponding print. A base colour layer (4) is applied to the three-dimensional object as the first colour layer, and a further colour layer (5) is printed thereon and/or a coating (6) is applied thereto. According to the invention the base colour layer (5) is printed smaller than the colour layer (5) and/or coating (6) thereabove.

Electronic functional component and method for producing an electronic functional component

The invention relates to an electronic functional component and to a production method for an electronic functional component. The electronic functional component comprises an electronic component (20), which is embedded into the functional component by means of a three-dimensional printing process. By means of the three-dimensional printing process, individual adaptation with regard to the shape and mechanical properties of the functional component can be performed in addition to the enclosing of the electronic component. Furthermore, the electrical connections (21) of the electronic component are led to the surface (30a) of the functional component in a suitable form.

Three-dimensional printing method

A three-dimensional printing method for forming a three-dimensional object on a base is provided. The method comprises providing a model library comprising at least one supporting member, selecting the at least one supporting member from the model library and disposing the at least one supporting member onto the base. The three-dimensional object is printed over the base and the at the least supporting member, and the three-dimensional object has an overhanging portion relative to the base and the at least one supporting member is filled between the overhanging portion and the base.

Method and apparatus of three-dimensional printing and electronic apparatus

A method and an apparatus of three-dimensional (3D) printing and an electronic apparatus are provided. The 3D printing method is adapted for printing a 3D object and includes the following. A plurality of layer objects of a 3D model are obtained, and a plurality of two-dimensional images, which correspond to a slice plane, of each of the layer objects are generated. The layer objects include a first layer object and a second layer object. When a comparison relationship between a two-dimensional image of the first layer object and a two-dimensional image of the second layer object matches a stack condition, the first layer object and the second layer object are stacked to generate thickness stack information of a stack object. A printing mechanism is initiated according to the thickness stack information so as to print a 3D object associated with the 3D model.
