BASF Venture Capital GmbH has announced an undisclosed investment in Chinese 3D printing OEM, Prismlab, according to TCT Mag.

Through the agreement, Prismlab will continue the development of products and expansion into the global 3D printing market and currently has five machines which are all based on stereolithography.

With five machines based on stereolithography technology each possessing a diverse build volume capability, the technology is expected to increase resolution without reducing speed.

The printing technology works with each pixel in the resin split into smaller sections which are then exposed to LCD light and cured individually.
