It's ROBOCKEY time!
A finished scale model of the Eiffel Tower printed on AddLab's new ProJet6000HD SLA 3D printer. Parts are built by using a laser to trace part layers in a photoreactive polymer vat, causing them to harden into 0.001" thick layers. The material shown is a Clear Polycarbonate-like material.
