A new method of 3D printing could make it possible to create materials up to 100 times faster than is currently possible.
A team of researchers at the University of Michigan (UM) has developed the new method, which lifts complex shapes out of a vat of liquid—much like the T-1000 in Terminator 2—rather than building up plastic filaments one layer at a time.
The researchers’ method uses two lights to control where a liquid resin hardens: a photoactivator hardens the resin where…
