Ferrofluid Skull Sculpture
This ferrofluid skull sculpture is hauntingly beautiful. Ferrofluids become magnetized when near a magnetic field. They were originally invented by NASA in 1963.

Carbon 3D – CLIP technology

Reshared post from +Corina Marinescu

Carbon 3D – CLIP technology
The next generation of desktop 3-D printers might do away with the excruciatingly slow process that current units use. Researchers have unveiled a printer that replaces the current extruder nozzle that squeezes out melted plastic one layer at a time with light and oxygen. 

Traditional 3D printing requires a number of mechanical steps, repeated over and over again in a layer- by -layer approach. CLIP is a chemical process that carefully balances light and oxygen to eliminate the mechanical steps and the layers.

It works by projecting light through an oxygen-permeable window into a reservoir of UV curable resin. The build platform lifts continuously as the object is grown.

Their work builds on the process called stereolithography, an additive manufacturing technique developed in the 1980's that builds parts layer by layer with liquid resin cured by light.
