3D Systems had 42 patents in 3D printing during Q1 2024. 3D Systems Corp has filed patents for curable compounds, hydrogels, and build materials for 3D printing, as well as methods for manufacturing 3D articles efficiently. The compositions described in the patents impart flame resistant properties and desirable mechanical properties to the printed articles. Different additives such as oxygen-deprivation additives, intumescent additives, and expandable graphite components are used in varying amounts to achieve these properties. The method for manufacturing involves selectively fusing and melting powder layers using a beam system, with different operating modes based on the dimensional parameters of the layers to reduce the time required for complex layer fusion.

Application: Curable compounds and formulations for biomedical applications (Patent ID: US20240091412A1)

The patent filed by 3D Systems Corp describes curable compounds, hydrogels, build materials, and methods for 3D printing. The build material for 3D printing includes compounds with specific structures, acrylate components, and water. The polymerizable liquid for hydrogel article formation consists of compounds with Formula (I) or Formula (II), acrylate components like hydroxyalkylacrylates, and water in specific amounts.

The claims detail the composition of the polymerizable liquid, including the presence of specific compounds, acrylate components, water, additional polymerizable materials, colorants, and a photoinitiator component. The method of printing a three-dimensional hydrogel article involves providing the polymerizable liquid and curing it with light to form the desired article, which can be done in a layer-by-layer process. The resulting printed three-dimensional article can be used for various applications, including medical implants.
