New technology will speed up 3D printing

3D printers are devices whose functionality can not be denied. They produce everything from toys to medical implants to meals. The problem is that they do it very slowly, however, thanks to the new technology developed by Carbon3D, these devices will soon be very fast.

Devices called 3D printers, they can produce almost anything, from small items, through the car body, to the home finish. But they have a major disadvantage, and it is quite a long time to create a product that can be up to several hours.

Joseph DeSimone, co-founder of Carbon3D and professor of chemistry at the University of North Carolina, however, says he has developed a new print method that speeds up the process. In his opinion, printing will be faster than 25 to 100 times. The method instead of superimposing the individual layers assumes that the entire object is formed immediately, and then uses oxygen and light to harden the material.
