Terminator-inspired tech could give traditional 3D printing a run for its money

Terminator-inspired tech could give traditional 3D printing a run for its money | Five Regions of the Future | Scoop.it

A new approach to 3D printing promises to drastically speed up the 3D manufacturing process by "growing" objects out of a pool of resin rather than printing them layer by layer. Carbon3D announced its Continuous Liquid Interface Production technology (CLIP) on stage at the TED conference this week, claiming it can produce commercial-quality objects from a range of polymer-based material at speeds between 25 and 100 times faster than conventional 3D printing.
