3D Printing Factory Mass Producing Humanoid Robot Body Parts

Korean 3D printing company Glück produces the Sculpia printing platform. And in this video, it demonstrates the platform’s capabilities by creating an army of humanoid robot body parts. “Finally,” I imagine Skynet thinking to itself while making plans to mass produce a whole line of Terminators. Obviously, there has never been a better time to consider a career in space travel and escape this planet.

Unlike extrusion 3D printing, these body parts are made via stereolithography (SLA), in which a thermoset liquid resin is cured using a UV laser for an extra smooth finish and high level of detail. I mean, they are making faces; after all, you don’t want them coming out looking like a children’s drawing.

Soon you won’t even be able to tell if the person you’re talking to is an actual human or a robot. And I, for one, don’t plan on being around to see that happen. I’ll be living on an earth-like planet orbiting Proxima Centauri, some 4.25 light-years away from here. You have fun playing that guessing game, though.
