Innovative technology 3D-printing developed by Carbon3D from Silicon Valley - VIDEO PDF Print E-mail

Innovative technology 3D-printing, developed by the company Carbon3D from Silicon Valley, gradually allows to create objects from the liquid medium, and not to build layer upon layer, as it did the previous 25 years.

This is a fundamentally new approach to three-dimensional printing. It allows you to create ready-to-use products in 25-100 times faster than other existing methods. Also, this method makes it possible to print previously unattainable geometric shapes that can find its application in various areas of health, medicine, automotive and aviation.



The technology, created by a team led by Joseph DeSimone (Joseph M. DeSimone), professor at the University of North Carolina, was named CLIP (Continuous Liquid Interface Production, continuous production of liquid surface).

Scientists manipulate light and oxygen to "smelt" objects from the liquid media. Thus for the first time in the history of the three-dimensional printing process is used instead of the traditional custom of photochemistry layered 3D-print, used for decades.

 

As the liquid medium at the liquid resin being used. The combination of light beams controlled flow of oxygen and leads to the solidification of the resin in the appropriate form that produces commercially viable objects. Incidentally, they may be less than a quarter of the width of the sheet of paper (approximately 20 microns).

The new process makes it more difficult to create, and miniature parts is also much faster than the conventional technology.

According to the developers, to create a process in which the object appears from a pool of hot tar, their inspired watching science-fiction film 1991 "Terminator 2," in which a robot T-1000 was formed from molten metal.

Currently, a team of chemists trying to find out what materials are compatible with this technology. Actually CLIP enables a fairly wide range of materials to create a 3D-parts with new properties (including elastomers, silicones, nylon, ceramics, and biodegradable materials). The technique itself also allows for the synthesis of new materials.

"Our technology not only allows the use of new materials not previously used for three-dimensional printing - says DeSimone. - It lets you create items with a unique geometry that in the future is likely to help to make dental implants, dentures or heart stents developed individually for each patient. The three-dimensional polymeric objects can now be made in minutes, not hours or days. This opens up exciting prospects for designers and engineers from around the world. "
