EnvisionTEC launched its Continuous Digital Light Manufacturing (cDLM) technology in early 2016 with the Micro Plus cDLM. It’s based on a patent-protected approach came up with a decade ago.
Continuous 3D printing is a newer approach to DLP printing in which the build plate moves constantly in the Z direction - allowing light to cure photosensitive polymers without interruption to produce a final part.
Read this paper, you will learn more about these technical considerations for continuous 3D printing:
• Beyond speed, what are the benefits of continuous 3D printing?
• What is a dead zone and why does it matter?
• Why is accuracy more challenged on a continuous 3D printer than with traditional DLP or SLA technologies?
• Is surface finish really always better on a continuous 3D printer?
We offer our cDLM technology in four configurations, specifically to meet the needs of customers in the jewellery, dental and manufacturing markets.
