It seems like everyone is getting on the DLP bandwagon in the 3D printing space as of late.  While we have known about DLP 3D printing (i.e. vat photopolymerization process – ASTM F2792 − 12a)  for some time, we had chosen to stay away mostly due to resin issues.   Over the past few years, many new […]
