25x~100x faster 3D printing?
« on: March 18, 2015, 01:14 AM »
This is a wildly different way to do 3D printing, and it's damn cool.

http://www.popularme...3d-3d-printer-resin/

Carbon3D's technology does this by harnessing oxygen and light to grow the parts continuously as the object rises like the T-1000 from Terminator out of the resin. One experiment captured in a study published Monday in Science shows a mini-Eiffel Tower emerging from a vat of blue liquid in just six minutes.

I'd forgotten all about this. Then today I came across this TED talk (from 2015) and came here to post about it and rediscovered this thread.

Apparently so, looking at that first link https://www.carbon3d.com/.

Also, at https://www.aniwaa.c...rinters/carbon3d-m2/

That price!!!

Yeah. But I imagine that within 10-20 years the technology will have been developed enough that it will be at least as accessible and affordable as 3D printers are today.

At least, one can hope...  :)
