3D printers come in all different shapes and sizes and can look like refrigerators or tinker toys. This new 3D printer developed by Monolith is absolutely stunning and looks like something out of a science fiction movie. The Monolith uses a process called “stereolithography” to create the three-dimensional object, layer by layer, out of a tray of special liquid resin in the machine. This resin is exposed to ultraviolet light, solidifying lit areas into a thin layer of plastic, leaving unexposed areas liquid. Each layer adheres to the previous and subsequent layers, as the platform moves upward, separating it from the bottom of the tray, but not the build platform.
The new Monolith 3D Printer is a thing of beauty!!
