Laser holograms create 3D-printed objects in seconds, no layering required

3 pictures Volumetric printing replaces layering with a process that creates the entire object simultaneously How do you create complex 3D-printed objects in seconds, instead of hours or days? A team of scientists and engineers led by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) has developed a process that uses hologram-like lasers to make complete objects in seconds inside a tank of liquid resin. Called volumetric 3D printing, the process overcomes many of the limitations of conventional additive manufacturing. Additive manufacturing, better known as 3D-printing, promises to revolutionize prototyping and manufacturing, but it’s a process that, for all its promise, has […]
