Carbon Company Overview

Founded with the vision to revolutionize manufacturing through digital technology, Carbon3D offers a comprehensive suite of 3D printing solutions. The company's unique Digital Light Synthesis™ technology, powered by its proprietary Continuous Liquid Interface Production (CLIP) process, significantly enhances the speed, precision, and material properties of 3D printed products. This technology allows for the creation of parts with isotropic properties that can be used right off the printer, distinguishing Carbon3D in the additive manufacturing sector. Carbon3D’s platform encompasses a variety of materials, software, and hardware that enable seamless transition from design to production. Their material offerings include rigid polyurethanes, elastomeric urethanes, and specially formulated resins for industries such as dental and orthodontics, highlighting their focus on high-performance and versatile applications. Their software suite optimizes designs for additive manufacturing, integrates with engineering workflows, and manages the production process efficiently, while their printers are renowned for their reliability and high throughput capabilities. Significant collaborations with major corporations such as Ford, Adidas, and Riddell illustrate Carbon3D’s impact across various sectors. For instance, their partnership with Adidas led to the creation of the Futurecraft 4D shoes, featuring a 3D-printed midsole, which showcases the potential of additive manufacturing in consumer products. Similarly, their work with Ford involves the production of durable, end-use automotive parts, demonstrating the industrial scalability of their technology. Strategically headquartered in Redwood City, California, Carbon3D has positioned itself at the heart of technological innovation, benefiting from its proximity to Silicon Valley's vibrant tech and startup ecosystem. This location supports their continuous innovation and collaboration with leading tech companies and academic institutions, ensuring that Carbon3D remains at the forefront of the 3D printing industry. The company's commitment to transforming production paradigms extends to its extensive educational and partnership programs, which aim to foster a broader adoption of digital manufacturing technologies across the globe.

Applications of Carbon DLS in the medical industry

In this article Xometry will be exploring the Carbon DLS 3D printing technology and its immensely beneficial role in the medical industry.

Carbon Doubles Down on Textures for 3D Printing with New Software Technique

For the past few years, I’ve been highly optimistic about the potential of textures in additive manufacturing (AM). I believe that by enhancing function and perceived value, textures could hasten consumer adoption of 3D printed goods, making them more valuable. The best texture for an orthopedic implant could be very valuable to a single orthotist, but it could even lead to a monopoly in that field. Beyond that, functional texture libraries could accelerate additive adoption even further. I was therefore hopping with glee when I learned that Carbon is researching this very topic.

Circle Internet Financial (Circle) and Concord Acquisition Corp (NYSE:CND), a publicly traded special purpose acquisition company, today announced the mutual termination of their proposed business combination initially announced in July 2021 and amended in February 2022.

Layoffs Continue with 3D Printing Double Unicorn Carbon

Amid the continued recession, 3D printing companies are continuing a trend of layoffs. In addition to the likes of Desktop Metal, Fast Radius, and Nexa3D, Xerox has essentially eliminated its Elem Additive business, maintaining it only to support current installations of the firm’s liquid metal 3D printer. The latest firm to reduce its staff is Carbon, makers of digital light synthesis (DLS) 3D printers.
