The CLIP technology, Carbon3D claims, enables "a huge range of materials" to create production-quality parts.
"We're able to draw from the whole polymer family to meet highly specific application requirements. Elastomers, for example, cover a range of needs, from the high elasticity needed for athletic shoes to the strength and temperature resistance needed for automotive parts," the company stated in its marketing material.
The printing process also allows for more accurate creation of CAD drawings versus printing "layer-by-layer."
"Parts printed with CLIP are much more like injection-molded parts. CLIP produces consistent and predictable mechanical properties, creating parts that are smooth on the outside and solid on the inside," the company stated.
