On-Demand Production With Programmable Photopolymerization (P3) 3D Printing, Parts Delivered in 3-5 Days

Origin’s P3 process precisely orchestrates light, temperature, and other conditions to automatically optimize prints in real-time for the best possible results.

Once we send the 3D model to the printer, a vat of photopolymer is exposed to light from a UV lithography engine. The UV lithography engine displays a pattern of light onto the build head area. The exposed liquid polymer hardens, and the build plate then moves, allowing the resin to flow underneath the hardened layer, and the liquid polymer is once more exposed to light. The process is repeated until the 3D model is complete.

P3 converts resins into highly crosslinked thermoset parts. Parts are almost fully polymerized during the print process. Post-processing involves removing any supports, cleaning the part in a solvent for a few minutes then curing the part for several minutes under a separate UV cure system.
