Hello RP-ml,

In 1993 there was launched a project by Materialize on medical-RP applications called PHIDIAS.
In the Synthesis Report there was discribed a Curtain Recoating technology, which has its origin in the photography industry.

1) Can anyone give me some more background about this recoating technology, what is the situation about interlectual properties and who could supply such a recoating component?

2) Where to look for alternative (re)coating processes (and component suppliers) for different materials like fluids, gel, paste etc..

Thanks in advance for your comments!
