3-D printing 100 times faster with light

by University of Michigan

Rather than building up plastic filaments layer by layer, a new approach to 3-D printing lifts complex shapes from a vat of liquid at up to 100 times faster than conventional 3-D printing processes, University of Michigan researchers have shown.

3-D printing could change the game for relatively small manufacturing jobs, producing fewer than 10,000 identical items, because it would mean that the objects could be made without the need for a mold costing upwards of $10,000. But the most familiar form of 3-D printing, which is sort of like building 3-D objects with a series of 1D lines, hasn't been able to fill that gap on typical production timescales of a week or two.

Misleading headline, typical of a science ignorant reporter  22222frying pan. It is NOT 100 X c, just 100 times faster than a typical commercial 3D printer.

That's too bad - if it was 100 X c, I could 3-D-print my own time machine...

I don't think it was ignorance, but dishonesty (clickbait stuff).  Ignorance and dishonesty are both typical of today's reporters and copywriters.
