My wife's dad had a stroke. I showed her this and she instantly wanted the phone number.
A great piece of work.

If you get one - let us know how you like it - Its really amazing - I mean star trek amazing - seriously thats like a huge advance.

has anyone else seen any new emerging technologies that seem... like magic? =)

Yeah, A couple of lifetimes ago - but that would be telling?

But up until powder sintered shape -memory metals in 3D machines

they all remind me of Kindler or Xmas cracker Toys on domestic buy.

It will get sexy then when I can design some earrings, for my gal,

go to bed, wake up and they are made for her.

Breakthrough will occur when automotive 3D printers

trickle down into the 'kit-bashing' market & 24hr

turnaround foundry boutiques.

For now 3D Chair ( Full Size) looks exotic as the design

impact can be cantilevered into fab shapes, Starck,KAstelli,

Arad are all exploring this, personally I would like to grow

a chair, any suggestions ,hah!

The human body is magic. I still dont know how it is able to move around so fluently With so many members.

this was covered in a previous thread....
http://forums.newtek.com/showthread.php?146062-25-100X-fater-3D-printing

The process is a refinement on DLP and SLA 3d printers, which work in a very similar way and pre-date existing FDM standard printing....have to go all the way back to 1987 to see the first form of this, so not exactly earth shattering except for its speed....which is only really fast compared to FDM printing, and a healthy gain over DLP/SLA

The problem with this kind of printing is proprietary resins with limited real world praticality...as far as strength ect

Compare that to Laser sintering for example

Proprietary? Maybe. Probably.
Materials/Strength? From another article....

"The CLIP technology, Carbon3D claims, enables "a huge range of materials" to create production-quality parts.

"We're able to draw from the whole polymer family to meet highly specific application requirements. Elastomers, for example, cover a range of needs, from the high elasticity needed for athletic shoes to the strength and temperature resistance needed for automotive parts," the company stated in its marketing material."

We'll see :)

wow - that was amazing to see- the lasers split off into a couple of beams sizzling

this guy has a cool voice.


so how much to buy one of these dohickys? =)

supposedly one coming out this year for $5000

right now probably 6-10 times that

I am sure there will be lots of applicable materials....but FDM right now has access to materials such as Tritan...with mechanical strength of 6600 PSI tensile

6061 Aluminium for example has a tensile strength around 18,000 PSI....so Tritan is about 1/3 the strength of 6061 aluminium (tensile at least) and still flexible.

I don't think any thermoplastic (nylon type polymers) could be possible with this process since this is basically a UV cured material. Still lots of applications, but with FDM any thermoplastic can be used (ABS, PolyCarbonate, Nylon, etc etc etc) standard plastics that are commonly used in industrial applications worldwide, and available in bulk.

The big benefit of this material (besides speed) would be for optical based prints...lenses, light tubes ect...where FDM printing has layer boundaries and lines....this much like SLA/DLP should be able to form a seamless optical object
