Fabrication goes for a quick spin Most 3D printing techniques involve adding material layer by layer. This sets some limitations on the types of applications for which 3D printing is suitable, such as printing around a preexisting object. Kelly et al. present a different method for manufacturing by rotating a photopolymer in a dynamically evolving light field (see the Perspective by Hart and Rao). This allowed them to print entire complex objects through one complete revolution, circumventing… 
How to print a 3D object all at once

Computed axial lithography: volumetric 3D printing of arbitrary geometries (Conference Presentation)
This work proposes and demonstrates a novel volumetric 3D printing technique based on one of the most ubiquitous computational imaging methods in the field: computed axial tomography, which is layer-less and does not involve any relative motion between the resin and the printed part, which has positive implications for mechanically isotropic part strength.
