A new class of materials adapted by researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) enable nearly instant production through volumetric 3D printing and expanding the range of material properties achievable with the technique.
The materials are called thiol-ene resins, and they can be used with LLNL’s volumetric additive manufacturing (VAM) techniques, including computed axial lithography (CAL), which produces objects by projecting beams of 3D patterned light into a vial of resin. As light cures the liquid resin into a solid at the desired points in the volume, the vial spins. The resin is drained, leaving the 3D object behind. The whole process takes place in a matter of seconds.
Using a custom volumetric…
