Orange Maker develops hardware systems and advanced materials for forming 3D objects using advanced patent-pending technology.

In recent years, 3D printing has been demonstrated to be an effective technique for accurately forming 3D objects, such as for the purpose of prototyping and manufacture. In its most general sense, 3D printing typically utilizes a 3D scanner and/or computer software to generate an image map of a desired object. That image map is then translated into a grid-like structure such that a computer-controlled fabrication device can deposit a flow-able material, such as a plastic, polymer, biomaterial or resin, via an additive process, which is simultaneously solidified to create a 3D object.

In many ways, the existing 3D printing technologies such as FDM (fused deposition molding) and SLA (stereolithography) have reached their theoretical limits. Advanced systems are required in order for additive manufacturing technologies to make a profound global effect.

In many ways, the existing 3D printing technologies such as FDM (fused deposition molding) and SLA (stereolithography) have reached their theoretical limits. Advanced systems are required in order for additive manufacturing technologies to make a profound global effect.

Common areas where all rapid manufacturing systems can improve upon include: increasing resolution, enhancing scalability of constructible parts, increasing the ability to construct difficult geometries, such as hollow cavities and overhangs, and increasing the ability to construct and preserve small and fragile geometries, such as those having little surrounding support. Efficient methods and devices that address these conventional inefficiencies while utilizing a single compact device are therefore in very high demand in today's rapidly-expanding global Additive Manufacturing market.

Orange Maker has innovated and filed internationally for a foundational patent on the unique continuous 3D manufacturing process, Heliolithography (HL), which has become highly anticipated in the global additive manufacturing industry as a solution to the above-listed challenges currently facing the industry.
