The Suspended Depositions project created a device that injects liquid resin into a gel tank and enables designers to retrace their steps.

The team behind the Suspended Depositions project, including graduate students at the Southern California Institute of Architecture in Los Angeles, created a new kind of 3D printer that has the ability to fix past errors, similar to using an undo button.

The freeform printer injects liquid resin into a gel tank, which traps the resin in its liquid form until it comes into contact with UV light. If designers want to retrace their steps, they can change the liquid resin and harden it when they are done.
