    I've thought the same could be done with an array of low power UV lasers and UV-cured resin, so that, when all the lasers add up, they only fully cure the resin that is intended to cure, leaving the surrounding resin cured only so slightly that it remains liquid.

    OK, now a bit skepticism: 1) Static electric field will for sure not be powerful enough because of the nature of the Poisson's equation. It would be like trying to make a sculpture with a spray from a distance. 2) It could make sense to create a standing EM wave with high intensity where we want the resin to cure. Imagine it as a hydrodynamic problem: how to make an arbitrary-shaped vortex. Guesstimated precise control over 1THz oscillations are likely to be needed to achieve 1mm resolution. This seems too much for current technology - but perhaps we could come up with some tricks... :-)

      The filter cartridge is a separate part from the mask body. I use 3M 6055 cartridges which are effective against a wide range of vapors, they are classified (according to German/EU nomenclature) as A1, A1 + Formaldehyd, A2, ABE1, ABEK1 and K1. If it's any indication, I don't smell the resin or any of the solvent while I'm wearing the mask.

Now I can print my work out and take it with me to bore them at the pub, or over dinner! That's progress. I can live without the better quality of SLA, and avoid the hassle. Serious people will have a different view! "Horses for courses!" Thanks again for a top-class video.

    A little more time studying Cymatics I believe will finally uncover the answer to not only the multi-layer 3D printing question, but also lead to the field of medical resonance based healing, for which the movie Elysium showed a great example of that. Simply scan the object to determine the frequency pattern of the whole, then replay the pattern to print items, or in the case of medical, replaying the "healthy" or "whole" frequency image of the body, will then be able to "regrow" or "restructure" the body into its healthiest pattern. This moves us along to what I envision is 5D technology, and both life enhancing, and life sustaining....not genetically modified bodies, but frequency modified/repaired bodies!

    The best tip I've ever used is to do the final cure with the part submerged in water. It prevents oxygen from reaching the part, which prevents the outer surface from curing fully.

  • Braden Eliason

    This is interesting and creative. I hope that it gets people thinking about how one-shot 3DP might work. He touches on the main issue which is that electricity doesn't travel in a straight line. Essentially electricity is inherently "blurry." The forward physics can be modeled with the boundary element method. Assuming the resin chemistry works, I wouldn't be surprised if one could make large smooth parts. If the drive electrodes are indeed constrained to the outer surface of the print volume, you are trying to figure out the necessary driving voltages (or currents) on the boundary of volume to create a desired field pattern in the print volume. This can be solved with the inverse boundary element method. Here's the issue I see, if you have a small feature near the center of the print volume, you need to produce a dramatic voltage gradient far away from your source electrodes. To produce such a high gradient that far away from the electrodes, the driving voltage of the source electrodes "explode." Another way of saying this is that the inverse boundary element method is ill-posed. Creating standing waves is an interesting thought. Solving for the necessary driving pattern sounds like a bear of a problem. If a bit of cured resin changes the electrical environment (which it seems like it must likely would), then this becomes very computationally tough. Now, you're dealing with a inhomogeneous medium. It might be possible to use this to some advantage though. Perhaps you place a "seed" of cured resin in the vat and manipulate where resin cures around the surface of the seed. If I were to venture a guess, such an electro-polymer may need to be combined with another physics modality to produce high resolution parts (electricity + light, electricity + ultrasound). I truly hope that people try to tackle this problem and I hope that this idea inspires everyone's thinking about one-shot 3DP. The challenge in my eyes is designing a system not (as) subject to the ill-posed state of the inverse boundary element method.

    🤯 that's Soo awesome. This is a bit related to my tesis I developed a VES system that by "injecting" voltages at a certain frequency to the soil and measuring in different commutations you could tell what type and even layers of soil you have under. So if you had only one type of soil and you wanted to see in detail the how compact the soil was you needed to change frequencys, so if you reverse that idea is Soo close to what he just said. Aweeeeesomeee
