3D Printing is Getting Faster and Cheaper

Researchers at The Chinese University of Hong Kong and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory found ways to make 3-D printing faster and more cost effective.


Currently, 3-D printing operates via a point-by-point scanning fashion, and takes a long time to create an object, with the build rate at ~ 0.1 mm3/hour: “Even a centimeter-sized object can take several days to weeks to fabricate,” PhysOrg says.


On top of that, there are currently no solutions to speeding it up with causing problems – if the speed of the current build rates is increased, the resolution of the object being created is compromised. As a result (and, alongside the high price tag), these 3-D printing processes are impractical for industrial applications, a problem for industries that depend on it to function, make money, etc.


However, researchers have found a way to […]
