Fraunhofer ILT previews support-free “TwoCure” SLA 3D printing

The Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology (ILT) and German prototyping specialist Rapid Shape GmbH have co-developed a new light based 3D printing technique. Challenging one of the main necessities of other 3D printers, the “TwoCure” process eliminates the need for typical support structures, making post processing parts easier than ever before. Free-floating 3D prints As the name suggests, the TwoCure technique is essentially a two step curing process, harnessing both light and thermal energy to cure a resin material. A part is made in much the same way as it is in typical SLA – built up in consecutive […]
