CLIP – A New High-Speed 3D printing technology

posted 23 March 2015 at 20:38:48

A new 3D printing technology announced by Carbon 3D has the potential to be a game-changer. Not only is it able to print at speeds up to 25-100 times faster than existing 3D printers, its makers also say that that the polymer-based objects it makes are of a higher quality with better structural integrity than ever before. The new technology, called CLIP – Continuous Liquid Interface Production technology – harnesses light and oxygen to continuously grow objects from a pool of resin instead of printing them layer by layer. If the technique can be perfected, Carbon 3D predicts that it will move 3D printing technology from its rapid prototyping niche to being used to make mass produced goods.
