Are you doing it?

Ford's doing it.  Riddell’s doing it. Automobili Lamborghini's doing it. Agrifac's doing it. They're all doing it with Digital Light Synthesis™.

Additive Manufacturing (or 3D printing in old money) is driving supply chain transformation. It's eliminating a need for new tooling. It's improving market responsiveness by cutting down on lead times. It's lowering handling costs.

Do it with Digital Light Synthesis™

Digital Light Synthesis™ prints 100 times faster than traditional 3D printing methods. Pioneered by Californian tech giants Carbon Inc, it uses a photochemical process to project light through an oxygen-permeable window into a reservoir of UV-curable resin. Resultant parts are layer free with consistent, isotropic and predictable mechanical properties. Carbon has poured as much effort into developing resins as it has producing the technology itself. Parts can be soft, hard, rubbery, somewhere in between, biocompatible, tough, tear-resistant, the list goes on. Please click on the images below to see the expansive range of resins in action, from medical-grade rigid polyurethanes to high-tensile strength elastomers.

Digital Light Synthesis™ continual production process enables multiple iterations of your design in one print. Prototyping turns into production without having to create tools. Because it has been developed with production in mind, the more efficient we are with platform utilisation, the more economical it becomes for you. 

Digital Light Synthesis™ provides design to mass production (at scale) opportunities in the following markets:



Consumer Goods

Defence & Security

Energy, Oil & Gas


Industrial Products
