(326a) Advances in 3D Manufacturing


DeSimone, J. M. - Presenter, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
3D printing has struggled to deliver on its promise to transform manufacturing. Prints take forever, parts are mechanically weak, and material choices are far too limited. In this talk I will update a breakthrough technology called Continuous Liquid Interface Production (CLIP) that grows parts instead of printing them layer by layer. CLIP allows businesses to produce commercial quality parts at game-changing speeds, creating a clear path to 3D manufacturing.
