An advanced new 3D printing technology has been shown off to the public for the first time at last week’s TED conference in Vancouver.
Developed by previously unknown company Carbon3D, the new 3D printing technology promises to significantly reduce the amount of time which it takes to 3D print objects.
This technology, which they call Continuous Liquid Interface Production (CLIP), uses light and oxygen to selectively cure a polymer resin. Targeted UV light is shone into a pool of liquid polymer, allowing for the continuous extrusion of an object.
Carbon3D believes that its new 3D printing technology, which was reportedly inspired by the film Terminator 2, is 25-100 times faster than traditional 3D printing processes and up to 1,000 times stronger.
