Provided is a lamination molding apparatus which can prevent the recoater head from being damaged when the recoater head clashes with an obstacle. Provided is a lamination molding apparatus including: a recoater head to form a material powder layer by moving in a chamber while supplying a material powder on a molding region and planarizing the material powder; wherein the recoater head is configured so as to be capable of being moved by a recoater head driving mechanism; the recoater head driving mechanism includes: a servo motor to move the recoater head; an encoder to detect a movement amount of the recoater head; and a controlling apparatus to control the servo motor in accordance with a value detected by the encoder; and the controlling apparatus is configured to place the servo motor in a non-control state when clashing of the recoater head with an obstacle is detected.


The manufacturing device manufactures a laminate shaped object by supplying material powder to a molding chamber to form a powder layer and irradiating a surface of the powder layer with a beam to sinter the powder layer. The molding chamber has a molding space where the material powder is irradiated with the beam and the laminate shaped object is formed, and a non-molding space which is outside the molding space and in which the laminate shaped object is not formed. An elastic member is disposed in the non-molding space, and the elastic member extends or contracts to change volume along with change of a relative position of the table in a vertical direction.
