Digital Light Synthesis to Drive Additive Manufacturing: Convergence of Hardware, Software and Molecular Science

This lecture will describe a new advance in additive manufacturing, referred to as Digital Light Synthesis, which is rapid, uses materials that have the requisite properties to yield final parts, and is economically competitive. Our approach promises to advance the industry beyond basic prototyping, which is what 3D printing has primarily been limited to, to truly enable3D manufacturing
