Roll-To-Roll Based 3D Printing Through Computed Axial Lithography

Tech ID: 32286 / UC Case 2021-108-0

Patent Status

Patent Pending

Brief Description

The inventor has developed systems and methods for performing continuous 3D roll-based additive manufacturing. This invention is distinct from roll-based micro/nanomanufacturing methods such as imprint lithography, gravure printing, and photo-roll lithography because it enables production of high aspect ratio reentrant features and voids in a single step that are difficult or even impossible with the existing methods.

Suggested uses

The invention has applications in mechanical metamaterials, microfluidics, 3D tissue culturing, and desalination.

Advantages

The invention enables production of high aspect ratio reentrant features and voids in a single step that are difficult or even impossible with the existing roll-based micro/nanomanufacturing methods such as imprint lithography, gravure printing, and photo-roll lithography.
