New 3D Printer Features: Fast Liquid Printing

Новые возможности 3D-принтеров: быстрая жидкая печать (6 фото + видео) Rapid Liquid Printing is a new trend in 3D printing that allows you to create large-volume objects in a short time. The proposed methodology is a joint development of the furniture manufacturer Steelcase and specialists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Новые возможности 3D-принтеров: быстрая жидкая печать (6 фото + видео) What is the fundamental difference between the new approach? Liquid printing is done inside a translucent gel. In conventional printing, a structure is created in layers, one superimposed on the other. In the new approach, the gel retains the shape of an object that must be printed by a printer. The material for the product hardens in contact with the jelly-like mass, so ultraviolet light and high temperature become unnecessary. The specialist takes the finished product immediately from the tank, rinses it and can be returned to the customer. Product size only depends on the size of the gel tank. Новые возможности 3D-принтеров: быстрая жидкая печать (6 фото + видео) New technology was introduced in Milan at Design Week. Then, using Rapid Liquid Printing, a lace version of the top of the coffee table was printed. It took 28 minutes to realize the design idea. Another experiment allowed us to reduce the manufacturing time of the desired part from 50 hours to 10 minutes.

Their plans include only continuing experiments. Carbon3D has developed a similar technology. But their method could not do without the use of ultraviolet radiation. It is necessary after immersion of the site in liquid polymer. This method is already being applied. Example, when creating the sole Adidas FutureCraft 4D.
