Interesting Fast 3D Printing Technique

From TechCrunch –

3D printing has changed the way people approach hardware design, but most printers share a basic limitation: they essentially build objects layer by layer, generally from the bottom up. This new system from UC Berkeley, however, builds them all at once, more or less, by projecting a video through a jar of light-sensitive resin.

Laser-assist-3D-printing

According to The Harvard Gazette –

The laser-assisted direct ink writing method prints microscopic metallic, free-standing 3-D structures in one step, without auxiliary support material. Lewis’ team used an ink composed of silver nanoparticles. The ink is sent through a printing nozzle and then annealed using a precisely programmed laser that applies just the right amount of energy to drive its solidification. The printing nozzle moves along x, y, and z axes and is combined with a rotary print stage to enable freeform curvature.

According to SeriousWonder.com –

Nearly a year ago Shanghai-based manufacturing company WinSun announced the successful development of 10 houses in only 24 hours using a 3D printer. They weren’t the best looking houses, given their simplicity, but it marked a turning point for the 3D printing market, transitioning itself from being an industry of small items to the industry of architecture. From then on, everyone knew that 3D printers would change the world.

Several months later, WinSun returns with their latest success story for both architecture and 3D printers alike: the development of an 1,100 square meter (11,840 square foot) villa and a five-story residential building!
