Carbon3D Unveils CLIP 3D Printing Technology

Carbon3D unveil a new 3D printing technology which is 25-100 times faster than the technology available today. Carbon3D is a Redwood city, California based company founded in 2013, changes the technology of 3d printing. 

CLIP (Continuous liquid interface production technology) works on harnessing the power to light and oxygen to cure a photosensitive resin. CLIP is a breakthrough technology that grows parts instead of printing them layer by layer. UV light triggers photopolymerization and oxygen inhibits it. By carefully balancing the interaction of light and oxygen, CLIP continuously grows objects from a pool of resin. CLIP moves beyond the limitations of 3D printing to offer unprecedented speed, quality, and choice.

Microsoft HoloLens: An Amazing Technology

Microsoft has introduced a new technology that seamlessly blends high definition holograms with real world. In this technology, a device called Microsoft HoloLens –a cordless smart glasses self-contained Windows 10 unit, is used to interact with holograms that represent your 2D or 3D physical objects [apps, folders, files, etc.]. You can pin your applications, files, etc. at any location in the physical space such as on floor, walls and can operate them through physical gesture just like you do with mouse pointer on the computer or by using voice commands.

NX CAM: Variable Contour operation with Streamline Drive Method

Variable Contour Operation remove the material along the contour surface of the part. The tool axis constantly changes its orientation as it move along the tool path.

The Streamline drive method builds an implied drive surface from the selected geometry. Streamline enables completely flexible tool path creation. A well ordered grid of regular faces is not required.
