3D printing process using shining light.
As specified by Chung Sun, associate professor of mechanical engineering at the McCormick School of Engineering, “The 3D printing process is no longer a way to merely make a replica of the designed model. We are using light to do the manufacturing. Shining light on the liquid polymer causes it to crosslink, or polymerize, converting the liquid to a solid. This contributes to the speed and precision of our 3D printing process — two major challenges that conventional 3D printing is facing.”
