    Looks very interesting. Congrats on the exciting reveal.

    One issue: For both Gizmo3D and Carbon3D, the use of the term “continuous printing” is a misnomer, as revealed by this part of the article:

    … his layers are printed like an animation, without any breaks between frames. The build plate, full of resin, continuously moves downward while this animation plays. Currently he calls this method of printing “continuous printing” but says that “animated printing” might even be a better term.


    Of course all animations have short breaks between frames.

    We are getting on the airline, off to CES in Vegas.

    Hopefully our second beta tester will be printing in the next 12 hours

    Is this resin heavier than the Markforged Nylon/carbon fibre construction. We fly Gliders and have been interested in these methods of manufacturing for cockpits unfortunately we dont see many machines capable of constructing something the size of a glider cockpit without costing an arm and a leg. Will you be going into large scale models , and congratulations keep up the good work hopefully you get the rewards you deserve, when are you crowdfunding?

    Looking more closely at the video this material seems more like a rubbery soft plastic.

    The material is soft when it comes off the machine, but hardens under UV

    What size do you need to print? Continuous printing I think might be perfect for your cockpit if you stand it up right. The current projection area for continuous printing is 130mm x 75mm and we can print at 3mm per minute at that size. We will test soon if we can maybe double the size if we print at 1mm per minute. Check our Facebook and other social media pages for photos of prints that we will post soon. We printed a knee and it turned out so extremely smooth. I believe your cockpits could also turn out that smooth

    Excellent idea. Can we get working on this? In the meantime, you can do what some folks do with the toilet cistern to waste less water: put large stones in.

    Key to making this economical to the masses would be the cost of the resin required to fill the tanks.
    This could be several times greater than the cost of the machines.
    That is if you had to fill the tanks with only resin a possibility would be to float a smaller volume of
    resin on the surface of a denser/cooler liquid?[/QUOTE]

    One disadvantage of the Carbon method that I haven't seen mentioned is that the model geometry has to be easily drained. My panpipes consist of tubes that are closed at one end. Whichever way up you print them the liquid would stay held inside the tube until the build was complete, or would escape in a rush at the last moment. And there is no knowing how the build platform could handle the extra weight.
