What is Carbon DLS 3D printing?

Carbon Digital Light Synthesis is an additive manufacturing process that uses a UV-sensitive resin to produce the desired model. In this process, a light source is used to project UV cross sections of a 3D model on a window to solidify the resin. It helps turn designs into scaled prototypes as close to the designed model. It is mainly used in the earliest stages of product development and can be used in conceptual models, functional prototypes, tooling, and electronics.

3D printing requires 3D CAD models to print a part or assembly. The 3D models can be made using parametric CAD software such as Solidworks and CATIA V5, or Subdivision modeling software such as 3DS and Blender.

Advanced 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing

What are the advantages & disadvantages of using Carbon DLS?

Carbon DLS is used over other 3D printing processes due to:
   -   Smooth surface finishing
   -   Complex shapes are easier to print
   -   Isotropic

Although there are disadvantages to using Carbon DLS:
   -   Limited material choice
   -   Higher cost

How is it fabricated?

The 3D printer slices the 3D model into several cross sections. A light source is used to project UV cross sections of a 3D model on an oxygen-permeable window to solidify the resin. UV light is used to harden the projected layer. Oxygen helps keep a thin uncured resin at the bottom of the printed model. This layer is called the “Dead Zone.” When a whole layer of the desired shape is deposited, the platform moves up to process the next layer. The printed part is heated to improve its mechanical characteristics.

Once the 3D printed model is finished, it can be removed from the platform. Post-processing might be required to remove any excess material and burrs or to smooth surfaces.
