The RTI Fellow Program is pleased to host Dr. Joseph M. DeSimone, currently CEO/Co-founder of Carbon3D in Silicon Valley.

Dr. DeSimone will discuss a new advance in 3D additive manufacturing that promises to advance the industry beyond basic prototyping to 3D manufacturing. The new continuous liquid interface production (CLIP) technology harnesses light and oxygen to continuously grow objects from a pool of resin instead of printing them layer by layer. CLIP technology raises the state of the art in 3D fabrication in three ways: game-changing speed, commercial quality and material choice.
