3D printing is more than just a curiosity. For producing components in small numbers, it is much less expensive that making molds and dies. Conventional production techniques get very inexpensive when volumes reach 100,000 or more, but for prototypes that may need only a few finished products, 3D is the way to go. It also allows for faster changes to the design at little to no additional cost, something not possible with traditional production methods. Credit: Science Advances If 3D printing has one drawback today, it is that is is s..l..o..w. Researchers at the University of Michigan say they have created a new process that speeds things up by a factor of 100. The physics are a bit complex for a simple scribe like me, but their entire report is available for free on S cience Advances . If topics like “Dual-wavelength volumetric photopolymerization confinement” titillate your brain cells, […]
