Behind the Buzz: Exploring the Challenges of High-Speed 3D Printing

High-speed continuous 3D printing has captured a lot of attention in recent years, and basically the method is an upgraded approach to Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology, which EnvisionTEC commercialized in 2002. With continuous printing, light can cure photosensitive polymers without being interrupted, as the build plate constantly moves in the Z direction – this […]

Freshmade 3D Debuts Strong New 3D Printing Material, AMClad, With a 3D Printed Bowling Ball

I like bowling, even though I’m terrible at it – I think the highest I’ve ever scored in my life was 150. I just find the whole atmosphere of the bowling alley enjoyable. But aside from a 3D printed assistive ramp for disabled children, we don’t often see 3D printing technology combined with bowling. That’s […]

NEXA3D versus NewPro3D: What Happens When You Kickstart Technology without a Patent

NEXA3D versus NewPro3D: What Happens When You Kickstart Technology without a Patent

About two weeks ago a new 3D printer manufacturer called NEXA3D launched a Kickstarter campaign for the NX1. The superfast light-cured resin 3D printer boasted lightning fast printing speeds thanks to what they were calling “patented” LSPc (Self-Lubricant Sublayer Photocuring) technology. The Kickstarter campaign was getting quite a bit of buzz and quickly pulled in […]
