25-100 times faster: Revolutionary 3D-printing technology announced

A new 3D-printing system is forecast to change the industry forever. The revolutionary liquid method has been found to be 25 to 100 times faster than its rivals – and it looks like something straight out of Terminator 2.

Carbon 3D, the relatively unknown California-based start-up behind the marvel, has pioneered the technique, which it calls Continuous Liquid Interface Production (CLIP). It uses lasers and oxygen in a way that slows down and allows the formed photosensitive resin to cure. This allows the printing to occur in three dimensions at once.

– STEPHANIE NANO

ASSOCIATED PRESS – NEW YORK- Scientists for the first time have used gene therapy to dramatically improve sight in people with a rare form of blindness, a development expert called a major advance for the experimental technique….

The research was published online yesterday by the New England Journal of Medicine in conjunction with presentations at a medical meeting in Florida….

“I think it’s really a big shot in the arm for gene therapy and for medical in general,” said Dr. Ronald Crystal, head of genetic medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York.
