"When you're 3D printing complex shapes, half of the time you are building the parts that you need, the other half of the time you're building the supports," says Prof. Yong Chen, who is leading the project along with PhD student Yang Xu. "So with this system, we're not building the supports. Therefore, in terms of printing time, we have a savings of about 40 percent."
