CEO of Carbon to Speak at Local Presentation
Carbon CEO Joe DeSimone
ANCHORAGE—On October 3rd 5:30-7:00 p.m. local dental restoration company Castable Ceramics will be hosting a presentation from the CEO of Carbon, Joe DeSimone.
Castable Ceramics also owns one of Carbon’s 3D printers, the M1, which happens to be the first carbon printer above 60 degrees latitude.
Shoe design from Carbon and Adidas.
Carbon, co-founded in 2013 by Joe and Philip DeSimone, is a company that works at the intersection of hardware, software, and molecular science. Their vision is a future fabricated with light, where traceable, final-quality parts are produced at scale with CLIP (Continuous Liquid Interface Production) technology. CLIP is a photochemical process that eliminates the shortcomings of conventional 3D printing by harnessing light and oxygen to rapidly produce objects from a liquid pool of resin.
In April of 2017, Carbon and Adidas teamed up to create the next big thing in athletic footwear: Futurecraft 4D. Carbon and Adidas have been working on creating shoes with variable properties across the midsole to improve performance for different sports. Previously, 3D printing was used to prototype products in development. To overcome the constraints of 3D printing, Adidas turned to Carbon’s Digital Light Synthesis technology, its factory-ready 3D printing method, and its high-performance materials to design and directly produce the next generation of athletic footwear.
