Centrifugal Manufacturing Allows For Multi-Resin 3D Printing

Chinese researchers have figured out a way to enable multimaterial resin 3D printing, overcoming the problem of mixing incompatible resins.

They created a process called ‘Centrifugal Manufacturing’ which is similar to regular resin UV printing, but between layers, the build plate is removed from the tank and spins extremely fast, removing all wet resin.

The system can then automatically continue the print in different resin tanks, enabling multi-colour and multi-material resin prints.
