Daqri is start-up that specializes in the creation of augmented reality devices, such as a smart helmet that improves safety conditions at a construction site. Now, the start-up is introducing a DLP 3D printer that is powered by holograms.
The additive manufacturing system boasts the ability to use projected light field, or a hologram, to cure light-sensitive monomers into solid objects. In contrast to existing DLP 3D printers, this new machine from Daqri sets itself apart by being able to cure an entire object all at once, versus curing 3D prints layer by layer.
As the technology is still in development, Daqri's printer can be used for making small items such as paperclips in as little as five seconds. In comparison to an ordinary 3D printer, this same process would take minutes.
Daqri's Additive Manufacturing Machine Cures with Complex Light Fields
