Using CLIP technology (Continuous Liquid Interface Production), the M1 reports 25-100x faster print speeds than PolyJet, SLS. and SLA printing technology
Carbon (formerly Carbon3D) released it’s new M1 printer on April 1, 2016. The enterprise level printer uses a new technology known as CLIP, Continous Liquid Interface Production, which dramatically reduces print time for production-quality polymer parts.
Carbon CEO, Joseph DeSimone, first introduced CLIP to the world at the 2015 TED conference. Since then, the company has garnered over $140M in funding. CLIP reports 25-100 times faster printing times than Poly-Jet, SLS, and SLA printing. Traditional polymer printers pause between each layer, whereas CLIP harnesses UV light and oxygen to print continuously. Not only is it faster, the continuous production gives parts printed using this method the same structural consistencies as injection-molded parts.
CLIP has the potential to be a game-changer, but so does the company’s 3D-printing industry-first subscription pricing model. According to Carbon, the subscription model, “reduces the overhead involved with capital equipment purchases and the complexity that often comes with the additional service agreements. It makes it possible for customers to leverage CLIP now, without losing the ability to upgrade as new products are released.”
