Fraunhofer ILT, Rapid Shape develop support-free 'TwoCure' resin 3D printing process

German 3D printing company Rapid Shape and the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT have developed “TwoCure,” a new resin 3D printing process that is similar to DLP 3D printing but which requires no support structures. Support structures are an important part of 3D printing: without them, many of your most intricate 3D printed pieces would collapse. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t incredibly frustrating. Because while effective support structures allow complex 3D printed parts to work, they are sometimes hard to get right during the design stage, and can be even fiddlier to get rid of once printing […]
