|Abstract(s):||Stereolithography (SL) is a process that allows the rapid manufacturing of high-accuracy rapid tools using an ultraviolet laser beam to polymerize a liquid resin, layer-by-layer. In this work, the friction properties of commercial SL resins in contact with several thermoplastics were assessed. Friction experiments were done with plastics overmoulded onto moulding blocks made from SL resins. It was observed that polymers with Hildebrand solubility parameters close to the resins showed adhesion characteristics that were not observed in polymers with values of this parameter further apart.|
