Process LOM - Laminated object manufacturing
Process suited for large and heavy parts, e.g. models for metal castings. Fine details cannot be produced, and surplus material has to be removed manually from the part.
The cost lies between those of SLA and FDM.

The required geometry is produced by gluing sheets of paper together while cutting surplus material with a laser beam.

Maximum dimension is about 1600 * 1200 * 1200 mm
