MIT engineers develop 10x faster desktop FDM 3D printer

Engineers at MIT have developed a laser-assisted FDM 3D printer that prints around 10 times faster than average desktop machines. The new 3D printer’s unusual printhead uses a laser and novel screw mechanism to increase flow rate. MIT researchers Jamison Go and Anastasios John Hart have developed a novel 3D printer printhead Lasers are a common component in many 3D printers. Stereolithography (SLA), selective laser melting (SLM), and selective laser sintering (SLS) all have a laser at their core that is used to turn their respective base materials into 3D printed objects. But the most common type of desktop […]
