I will say more about these applications in the next couple of chapters. MOVINGLIGHT Several companies continue to innovate with DLP and related technologies, with new variants regularly coming to market. For example, in December 2013, ‘MOVINGLight’ was introduced by Prodways. This works like standard DLP projection, but achieves an even greater resolution by employing a moving, top-mounted DLP projector to shine object layers onto the surface of a vat of liquid photopolymer. The technology also enhances print speed by using the latest UV LEDs as its DLP projector’s light source.
For example, reducing the level of ‘infill’ in an object will make it less likely to warp. It is indeed rare to 3D print totally solid plastic objects. But if we move on to the ‘T’, the upper parts of the letter jut out at a straight 90 degrees and would certainly fall away if no action were taken. Similarly, the capital ‘M’ may initially appear impossible to print, as during the early stages of the process the middle part of the letter would have to hang unsupported in space. Of course, the ‘T’ and the ‘M’ could be printed quite easily by outputting them lying flat on the build platform – and indeed optimal object orientation is critical when planning the 3D printout of almost anything.
LITHOGRAPHY-BASED CERAMIC MANUFACTURING A sixth vat photopolymerization technology has been developed by Lithoz, which terms its process lithography-based ceramic manufacturing (LCM). This is a form of DLP projection that selectively cures a photopolymer resin that contains ceramic particles. After printout, extensive post processing is required in order to remove the photopolymer, and to sinter the remaining material into a compact ceramic part. Once printout and post-processing is complete, LCM results in objects that are made entirely of a ceramic material.
