Solid Ground Curing

A vat photopolymerization additive manufacturing process that cures the photopolymer layer with UV light that has been shaped with a digital mask rather than with a laser or a projector. The process includes multiple steps for each layer, beginning with the solidification of the layer with UV light. After that, excess liquid is removed with blown air, melted wax is spread over the layer to fill voids, then a milling head is used to flatten the surface. Abbreviated as SGC.
