A New Type of 3D Printing Inspired by Terminator 2 [Video]

This new 3D printing technology was invented by the folks over at Carbon 3D, who inspired themselves from Terminator 2 to create the technology.

Traditional 3D printing requires a number of mechanical steps, repeated over and over again in a layer-by-layer approach. CLIP is a chemical process that carefully balances light and oxygen to eliminate the mechanical steps and the layers.

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.
