Written by David

Instead of building 3D objects layer by layer, the new printer creates whole Solid structures by projecting light into a resin that solidifies. A new 3D printer uses light to transform gooey liquids into complex solid objects in only a matter of minutes . Nicknamed the “replicator” by the inventors — after the Star Trek device that can materialize any object on demand — the 3D printer can create objects that are smoother, more flexible and more complex than what is possible with traditional 3D printers. It can also encase an already existing object with new materials — for instance, adding a handle to a metal screwdriver shaft — which current printers struggle to do. The technology has the potential to transform how products from prosthetics to eyeglass lenses are designed and manufactured, the researchers say.
