MX3D Resin is a method of additive manufacturing we developed, the precursor of our metal printer. By using innovative extrusion technology and super fast curing resin we were able to neutralize the effect of gravity during the course of the printing process. This method makes it possible to create 3D objects on any given working surface, independently of its inclination and smoothness, and without a need of additional support structures. By using innovative extrusion technology and super fast curing resin we are now able to neutralize the effect of gravity during the course of the printing process. This method gives us a flexibility to create organic shaped objects by making 3D curves instead of 2D layers. Unlike 2D layers that are ignorant to the structure of the object, the 3D curves can follow exact stress lines of a custom shape. Finally, our new out of the box printing method can help manufacture structures of almost any size and shape.
MX3D Resin is the result of a research initiated by Joris Laarman Lab, in collaboration with the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC).
