3D printing is about to get 100x faster and much more durable

A new company called Carbon3D has designed a process that uses patterns of ultraviolet light and oxygen to enable continuous-growth 3D "printing"

Check out the company website:

"What we think of as 3D printing, says Joseph DeSimone, is really just 2D printing over and over ... slowly. Onstage at TED2015, he unveils a bold new technique — inspired, yes, by Terminator 2 — that's 25 to 100 times faster, and creates smooth, strong parts. Could it finally help to fulfill the tremendous promise of 3D printing?"
