A lamination molding apparatus which can improve the lamination molding accuracy, is provided. A lamination molding apparatus, including a chamber covering a desired molding region, the chamber being filled with an inert gas of a predetermined concentration; and a molding table provided in the molding region, the molding table being configured so as to be capable of being moved vertically by a driving mechanism; wherein the molding table is configured to be temperature-controllable; and a thermostatic section is provided in between the molding table and the driving mechanism or in the driving mechanism, temperature of the thermostatic section being maintained substantially constant, is provided.


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.
