This incredible new way of printing 3D has been influenced by the killing machine T-1000 in the Terminator 2 film from 1999. In one iconic scene we see the villain rise from a chequered floor in a puddle of metallic goo. Well, 15 years later and this is now almost a possibility with Carbon3D’s printing method ‘continuous liquid interface production technology’. The method uses a pool of resin over a digital light projection system, creating objects that rise out of the fluid. This way of printing does away with the ‘layered’ version currently employed by most 3D printers, meaning the resolution headache of seeing your object in steps, will become a thing of the past. It’s an exciting leap forward for the technology.
