Phantom Geometry, an entirely new production methodology Using UV Light

Students Invent A New Method Of 3-D Printing (VIDEO).
Robot arms wield an off-the-shelf projector and a vat of light-sensitive resin in a new form of digital fabrication.

This summer, the Southern California Institute of Architecture handed out its first Gehry Prize, a thesis award named in honor of the legendary 83-year-old architect (and his recent $100k donation) to husband and wife duo Liz and Kyle von Hasseln.

Their project, Phantom Geometry, is not a single design but an entirely new production methodology that uses light from an off-the-shelf projector to cure a special resin into complex, adaptable models. It was developed in SCI-Arc’s Robot House, where students can experiment with six state-of-the-art Staübli robotic arms under the guidance of Peter Testa and Devyn Weiser.
