We all love 3D printing. Maybe we are still learning and exploring about 3D printing. We have enough knowledge and research on 3D printing. At the beginning of 2014, we had very little resources. Now in 2019, we have so many 3D printing companies and universities research work. We are using 3D printing in everyday life. We don’t know what is 3D printed stuff or not 3D print. We have healthcare, related to 3D print we even don’t know. We are learning about new technology day by day. More we read more we get an education. It is been so many years. 3D printing companies are growing and blossoming:)
According to the Fox News,” An initial public offering (IPO) looks as if it could be approaching for Carbon, the Silicon Valley-based 3D printing unicorn that exploded onto the tech scene Opens a New Window. in 2015 and is probably best known for partnering with Adidas (NASDAQOTH: ADDYY) to produce running shoes with 3D-printed midsoles Opens a New Window. Carbon’s co-founders were inspired to develop [DLS] by the robotic assassin T-1000 from the movie Terminator 2, which rises from a pool of liquid metal to assume the form of any person or object. Indeed, DLS “grows” polymer parts continuously from a pool of liquid resin by harnessing ultraviolet light and oxygen. The tech can be considered a close cousin of stereolithography, which 3D Systems invented”. According to the Forbes and Carbon’s co-founder and CEO Joe DeSimone, “3-D Printing Unicorn Carbon, On Way To Expected IPO, Drops Resin Prices In Move CEO Calls seminal moment. It would help enable more widespread adoption of 3-D printing at scale. It’s not prototyping anymore, it’s production”.
Carbon3D Raises $100M from Google Ventures and Others
In June, 2015 we wrote about Carbon3D and its Continuous Liquid Interface Production technology (CLIP), that grows parts rather than printing them layer by layer as done by conventional 3D printers. Carbon3D recently closed a $100M series C round of funding lead by Google Ventures. Reinet Investments spokesman Anton Rupert said, “After evaluating Carbon3D’s CLIP technology, we believe it is a game-changer for complex manufacturing across many global market segments.” According to Andy Wheeler, General Partner at Google Ventures, “Carbon3D’s technology has the potential to dramatically expand the 3D printing market beyond where it stands today and reshape the manufacturing landscape.” Carbon3D, a Silicon Valley based company, was founded in 2013.
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 the 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.:)
