All of Carbon3D's marketing and demonstrations show their CLIP technology producing contiguous and bridge-free parts. Has anyone seen examples of their M1 printing something like a buckyball within a buckyball or a figurine or some other shape that requires support material to print?
For example, how would the Carbon3D print a shape like this:
vvvvvBUILDPLATEvvvvv ==================== XXX XXX BBB <----- columns A and B require support material XXX AAA BBB in order to connect them to the build XXX AAA BBB plate. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX |~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~| |~~~~~~~~RESIN~~~~~~~| |~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|
In a similar vein, how do they handles enclosed volumes? I doubt anyone wants a sphere filled with still-liquid resin...
Again, I've looked around, I can find no material addressing these questions, so if anyone can shed some light, I'd be glad.
