The Foam Printing Project
Founded by Matthew Pearlson, an MIT alum, the Foam Printing Project seeks to unlock the additive manufacturing of low-density UV curable resins to produce light-weight structures. This technology can be used in multiple industries to gain up to 75% weight reductions while still maintaining the durability, resiliency, and strength of traditional additive manufacturing at a quarter of the price.
This project is being supported by a National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant for $250,000 to conduct research and development work on lightweight foam structures.
