3D printing process with smooth surfaces developed for lenses and glasses
Polymers and elastomers : 22 July, 2014
Making things with a three-dimensional (3D) printer is quickly becoming a commonplace activity. In part this is because of the expanding range of "printable’ materials, which now includes precious metals, biological tissue and even the ingredients for a pizza. But the machines are still not very good at producing smooth surfaces. This is because 3D printers deposit material layer by layer, which can leave ridges.
