Liquid 3D-printer - SCI- TECH
"Rapid Liquid Printing" uses gel to suspend its creations.
MIT collaborated with furniture firm Steelcase to create it. Rapid Liquid Printing physically draws in 3D space within a gel suspension, and enables the creation of large scale, customized products made of real-world materials. Compared with other techniques this is the first development to combine industrial materials with extremely fast print speeds in a precisely controlled process to yield large-scale products.
