Why EnvisionTEC DLP 3D Printing is Better …

Not all forms of 3D printing are created equal—and that truth is also evident to the visible eye within individual 3D printing processes as well. Novices to the field sometimes debate whether SLA or DLP is a superior technology for final 3D printer performance. But even within the processes of SLA (stereolithography) and DLP (digital light processing), there are significant

A Ceramic 3D Printing Breakthrough

The resulting material can withstand ultrahigh temperatures in excess of 1700°C and exhibits strength ten times higher than similar materials.

Previously, The extremely high melting point of many ceramics adds challenges to additive manufacturing as compared with metals and polymers. But now, the invented preceramic monomers are cured with ultraviolet light in a stereolithography 3D printer forming 3D polymer structures that can have complex shape and cellular architecture. These polymer structures can be pyrolyzed to a ceramic with uniform shrinkage and virtually no porosity by heating.
