Polymer-based 3D printing from Carbon3D.

Posted on Updated on


Carbon3D has announced a new approach to polymer-based 3D printing. Their approach is based on CLIP (Continuous Liquid Interface Production) technology which continuously grows objects from resin instead of the conventional approach of layer by layer printing. Joseph DeSimone, co-founder of Carbon3D and Chancellor’s Eminent Professor of Chemistry, UNC, mentioned in his Ted talk in Canada, that this technique was inspired by the film Terminator 2, in which the T-1000 robot rises from a pool of metallic liquid. According to DeSimone, objects created by conventional 3D printing are weak because they are made up of multiple layers obtained by 2D printing over and over again. In contrast, CLIP-based 3D printing is 25-100 times faster and generates much stronger objects.

    This is CLIP based more than 100 times faster .
