CLIP technology from Carbon3D

CLIP (Continuous Liquid Interface Production) is a new 3D printing technology from Carbon3D that “grows” parts instead of printing them layer by layer like traditional material extrusion printers. CLIP is a chemical process that balances light and oxygen to eliminate the mechanical steps and layering of FDM printers. It works by projecting light through an oxygen-permeable window into a reservoir of UV curable resin. The build platform lifts continuously as the object is grown. Light makes the resin solid, oxygen keeps it from becoming solid.
