The presentation will include an overview of the different resin-based 3D printing technologies, including Photocentric’s ‘Daylight Polymer Printing’. It will discuss the pros and cons of DPP. Also, it will tell the story of the development of the printers from the first experiments on the lab bench to the three models offered today. There will be a chance to ask questions and talk to David and the directors of Photocentric. There will be examples of the printers on display and a selection of printed parts, demonstrating some of the capabilities of resin-based 3D printing.

David O’Brien MA MEng has worked with Photocentric Ltd since 2012. In recent years, the company has developed 3D printers and photopolymer resins for the 3D market. David has worked on the design and development of Photocentric’s ‘Liquid Crystal’ range of printers. They utilise LCD screens emitting visible light to cure the resin and build the part. This makes them unlike any other 3D printer on the market today.
