A report released by researchers from UC Berkeley and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in the journal Science on Thursday outlined the design of a new 3D printer that allows objects to be printed more quickly than previous printers, with smoother surfaces and no sacrificial support structures. Researchers Brett Kelly, Indrasen Bhattacharya, Hossein Heidari, Maxim Shusteff, Christopher Spadaccini and Hayden Taylor developed this 3D printer, which can create solid materials all at once, as opposed to layer by layer, using light. This new method of 3D printing, officially known as computed axial lithography, or CAL, has been given the nickname “the replicator” by its developers after a machine in “Star Trek” that could print objects out of thin air, according to co-author Heidari. The […]
