報告:Additive manufacturing of ceramic components (大司)−93−Synthesiology Vol.11 No.2(2018)concerning other R&D related to AM be reduced or deleted by stating that “similar integration of elemental technologies is attempted as PLM”? It is also useful to use references. I also suggest narrowing down examples presented in the Chapter 5 “Prototype models produced by AM.”Answer (Tatsuki Ohji)As you pointed out, I have revised the manuscript as follows: The global state of ceramic industry and the situation of Japan, and the significance of the HCMT project in order to break through the situation was described in Chapter 1 “Introduction”; R&D under this project and the managerial system was written in Chapter 2 “Overview of HCMT project”; the technical strategy of AM was summarized in Chapter 3 “R&D strategies for AM of ceramics” and Chapter 4 “Platform technologies in PLM”; and the outcomes up to now were presented in Chapter 5 “Prototype models produced by AM.”As I have responded to the previous comment, I have focused on the prototype model of PLM in Chapter 5 “Prototype models produced by AM,” and have greatly reduced the descriptions of technologies other than PLM in Chapter 3 “R&D strategies for AM of ceramics,” and have added a sentence that you suggested to the end of Chapter 4 “Platform technologies in PLM.”3 Technical terms and drawings (gures)Comment (Toshimi Shimizu)The readers of Synthesiology are not specialists of ceramic technology, but general engineers, researchers, and readers. For the engineers not related to the ceramic eld, it would be dicult to understand the various and numerous technical terms that are used throughout this report. Since the report is written assuming that the technical terms are understood, understanding of the content by the general reader would not be deepened with such diculty. Lack of unity of terms can also be seen.The shortest course to explain technical terms is to use drawings. Extreme examples are the processes of shaping the raw material, sintering, and the post process, which are nothing special for engineers of the eld, need to be explained from the basics by using drawings to the general reader and engineers from other fields. Regarding classification of AM, and technological explanation of PLM and slurry layer manufacturing (SLM), how about organizing technologies with overviews and characteristics by using drawings?Answer (Tatsuki Ohji)As you pointed out, I have used drawings in Table 1 “Classification of AM,” and diagrams (Figs. 3, 4) of PLM and SLM of the revised (final) draft. In the diagrams on PLM and SLM, I have used numbers that correspond to explanations in the text. In the related diagram of elemental technologies (Fig. 5), I have also used simple illustrations. Concerning technical terms, they have been unied to the most general terms that are used in the materials eld.4 Intellectual properties (draft)Comment (Akira Kageyama)I imagine that there are many intellectual properties generated through this project. Couldn’t you write about this in the last chapter, Chapter 6” Summary and future perspectives”? For example, it can be a phrase like “so and so number of patents on PLM, and so and so number of patents on the HCMT project as a whole have been filed.” Intellectual property is one of the important outcomes of R&D, and is a yardstick to measure international competitiveness of technology.Answer (Tatsuki Ohji)As you indicated, I have added the following sentence to Chapter 6 “Summary and future perspectives”: “In order to ensure the developed technologies, 7 and 26 patents have been applied for on PLM and on the HCMT project as a whole, respectively, as of March, 2018.”
