We have attached a copy of the patent abstract for the patent covering this
technology. If you want the full patent, email us offline to the group.
The basic idea behind this technology is similar to laminated object
manufacturing (LOM) as practiced by Helisys, except the machine jets an adhesive
release agent to allow selective adhesion. This approach eliminates the
"decubing" that was required by the LOM system.
Additional details can be obtained from the Solidimension home page.
