A New Method Of 3-D Printing, Using UV Light.
Think of their system as you would a 3-D printer. One robotic arm supports a souped-up digital projector at a stable height. A second arm holds a vat of honey-like resin similar to what the dentist uses to make molds of your teeth. The second arm maneuvers the vat into the projector’s beam of light, and the designer tells the computer where and when to expose the vat to the projector’s UV rays, instantly hardening a specific portion of the resin. The rest of the liquid resin drops away as the arm moves it lower—making it look as though the clear model is being “pulled” out of the vat of liquid.
Project Featured is Phantom Geometry by husband and wife Liz and Kyle von Hasseln who were awarded the first Gehry Prize, named in honour of the famous architect after his recent donation to the department.
3D Printing process developed by Sci Arc Robotic house’s Peter Testa and Devyn Weiser.
This is fantastic really useful, takes 3D modelling to new levels also I think if ‘Ridley Scott’ developed 3D printing it would look like this, it is so Sci-fi.
