CLIP = Continuous Liquid Interface Production

3D printing has taken a revolutionary step forward with a continuous printing technique that draws material from a liquid pool, controlled with a pattern drawn by light. The CLIP process lifts a forming object from a pool of resin while a beam of light controls the formation by projecting a sequence of images on the surface of the resin, modulating the state of the resin.

Carbon3D Unveils Breakthrough CLIP 3D Printing Technology, 25-100X Faster – [3dprint.com]

In what may be one of the biggest stories we have covered this year, a new company, Carbon3D has just emerged out of stealth mode, unveiling an entirely new breakthrough 3D printing process, which is anywhere between 25 and 100 times faster than what’s available on the market today.The privately-held Redwood City, California-based company, Carbon3D, was founded in 2013, and since then has been secretly perfecting a new 3D printing technology which promises to change the industry forever. The technology that the company calls Continuous Liquid Interface Productiongo technology (CLIP) works by harnessing the power of light and oxygen to cure a photosensitive resin. Sounds an awful lot like Stereolithography (SLA) technology, doesn’t it? While it uses principles we see within a typical SLA process, where a laser or projector cures a photosensitive resin, Carbon3D’s CLIP process strays greatly from the technology that we are all used to seeing.
