Joe DeSimone cofounded Carbon (formerly Carbon3D) to bring chemistry to bear on 3-D printing. Join us as we learn how this has enabled the company to print at unprecedented speeds and churn out materials that have never been printed before. And find out why Carbon believes it’s poised to kick off a new era of 3-D manufacturing.

And if you want to learn more about the amazing work being done by e-NABLE volunteers, visit their website: They’ve also got a collection of material available at the NIH 3-D Print Exchange:

Special thanks to Jen Owen of e-NABLE for sharing footage for this episode.

All of the Carbon printer footage is sped up. Although these printers are way faster than conventional 3-D printers, they still takes minutes or hours to create parts.
