Even as resin development takes a step forward, 3D-printed objects still have inherent structural flaws because of the layered building steps of the traditional additive manufacturing process.
Coeur d’Alene, Idaho-based company Continuous Composites has introduced a novel process, known as Continuous Scaled Manufacturing (CSM), that some believe could revolutionize 3D printing.
Imagine 3D printing a car, the wall of a building, an aircraft wing or some similarly complicated structure all in one step.
When explaining 3D printing concepts to the uninitiated, there’s always that moment of disappointment when they find out that you can’t actually 3D print functional objects...
The world of 3D printing holds so much promise for many industries, and there are new technologies that are improving the 3D printing process.
3D printed objects are usually built up in horizontal layers by a printer head, light or heater passing across the printing plate horizontally, but what about printing the entire part vertically in one go?
