Continuous Liquid Interface Production

Carbon CLIP

CLIP works by projecting a continuous sequence of UV images, generated by a digital light projector, through an oxygen-permeable, UV-transparent window below a liquid resin bath. A dead zone created above the window maintains a liquid interface below the advancing part. Above the dead zone, the curing part is drawn out of the resin bath to produce parts with excellent mechanical properties, resolution, and surface finish.

Build Specs
With M2 printers, we’re able to bring the power of the Carbon SpeedCell™ to your next project. From first iteration functional prototypes, or production runs of end-use products, the M2 offer the size and material strength necessary for the job.

Material Info
Carbon has created a diverse and growing selection of materials that enable product designers and engineers to build functional prototypes and production-quality parts. The materials were designed to meet the specifications of common injection molded alternatives. To see all of the available materials and their defining characteristics, click the link below.

CLIP Tolerances
Expected tolerances for CLIP parts using UMA 90 material are +/- .005” for the first inch and +/- .002” for each additional inch. For all other engineering materials available, tolerances are dependent upon material selection. Part geometry, wall thickness, and build orientation can have an effect on tolerances. Please let us know if you have critical dimensions that need to be met.
