Printing tiny, high-precision objects in a matter of seconds

3D printing is amazing as it allows us to create all manner of objects in a variety of shapes and sizes. However, the problem with the current method of 3D printing is that it can be a bit slow, and sometimes it might not be ideal if you’re looking for higher levels of precision. However, researchers at EPFL might have come up with a solution.The researchers have recently announced that they have developed a new 3D printing process that they claim will be capable of printing highly-precise objects only in a matter of seconds, which you can check out for yourself in the video above which shows it in action.According to Damien Loterie, the CEO of Readily3D (a spin-off company created by EPFL), “Conventional 3D printing techniques, known as additive manufacturing, build parts layer by layer. The problem is that soft objects made that way quickly fall apart.” The researchers believe that this technique can be used in a variety of fields, especially the medical field where they tested 3D printed
