We've been keeping an eye on developments in the world of 3D printing for the last couple of years. The subject is getting a lot of attention recently because 3D printing is now cheaper and more efficient and there are whole lot more players in the market. Of course, aside from the fact that 3D printing could have complete and utter game changing impact on our entire consumer culture, our interest for this post lies in the technology's innards which include DLP projection.more

Fascinating is the work of Burlington, Massachusetts based company, Z Corporation. They have the ability to create different mechanical and physical objects with a copying machine – a three-dimensional (3D) printer. This video unfortunately does not highlight the role played by a DLP projector in the process. Here we have a promising, albeit very rudimentary variation on the Enterprise's “Ship’s Replicator”(aka molecular assembler) and a projector plays a key role in one of its critical processes--the curing process. DLP may indeed challenge the dominance of lasers for curing resins because of the cost. But at this juncture, we just wanted to share a video featuring some very cool technology.
