Carbon 3D print with Diamond technology

Posted on Updated on

Carbon 3D is really about to change the game with “Diamond technology,” the collaboration creates lattice design pads of resin that are custom built to a player’s dimensions and position. This is advanced manufacturing. The designs and manufactures to make protective gear for football and other games.
According to Carbon co-founder and CEO Joseph DeSimone “We scan heads, and then you’ve got the shell of the helmet. The gap between the head and the shell is now customized. That space is now custom to everybody, and we fill that space with a lattice that controls the impact of the sport. It allows you to get really great performance as you control the impact that the players see.”

Polymer-based 3d printing from Carbon3D


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.:)
