The Carbon M2 3D printer uses continuous liquid interface production technology (CLIP) to rapidly create physical objects from 3D models. Carbon's tunable photochemical process involves controlling the oxygen flux through a light- and oxygen-permeable window, which creates a thin (10’s of micrometers thick) region within the resin pool where oxygen inhibits photopolymerization. As cross-sectional images of the 3D model are projected into the resin pool from below, the physical object continuously materializes from just above this thin oxygen-rich region. This technology produces “layerless” components with smooth external surfaces and solid cross-sectional areas of printed features. Components created with the Carbon M2 are printed roughly 25 to 100 times faster than traditional SLA printing and have more consistent mechanical properties.Learn more.
