(3Ders.org) German RepRap has introduced its first Liquid Additive Manufacturing (LAM) production-ready 3D printer, the L280.
“LAM is a very interesting 3D printing process, because it works with a material that is in a liquid form that is vulcanized under heat exposure to its final form, contrary to the FFF technology – that is based on melting a material and solidifying again,” stated the company. “In this way, objects can be produced that have the same properties as injection-molded parts – a clear advantage because insights from the 3D-printed prototype can be transferred directly to injection-molded serial parts.”
