A new 3D printer has been unveiled by Silicon Valley startup Carbon3D. The new printer can create objects 25 to 100 times faster than different printers. In short it is simply another 3d printer that can as such take minutes instead of hours or days. Carbon3D’s innovation develops objects continuously from a pool of resin instead of the decades-old orthodox method of building layer by layer. The new technique likewise takes into consideration the creation of more mind boggling shapes and structures, opening up a universe of potential possibilities in the industry as versatile as health care and avionics. The new technology has given the name CLIP. CLIP stands for Continuous Liquid Interface Production. The technology will reach the public domains through the cover of the March 20 issue of Science.

The technology builds on existing 3D-printing techniques which rely on photosensitive resin and lasers, but rather than processing an item layer by layer, CLIP can “grow” a product in three dimensions by projecting light through an oxygen-permeable window into liquid resin. The curing power of the U...
