Computed Axial Lithography

New technology being developed for 3D printing.  Instead of printing layer by layer, it prints the whole object at the same time.  Small objects print in 20 seconds to 1 minute.  Also does not need supports.

Pretty cool.

Interesting, still a ways off though. Parts looked very gummy and square cubed law is going to be hell with print volume being dependent on a fluid filled cylinder that spins.

I remember seeing this years ago. Something was printed inside a little vial filled with liquid. It looked like it was spinning while printing.

Here’s another video that explains it in more detail.  It is a presentation at a conference so kinda slow but if you are interested and have 15 min to spare…

Seems to me that the technology could be easily commercialized so maybe won’t be that far off.
