Paxis LLC to introduce new WAV additive manufacturing process and technology

WAV, a new large build area industrial manufacturing process with projected speeds of 4x, 8x, and 24x+ of current additive manufacturing photopolymerization systems

CRYSTAL LAKE, Illinois (May, 8, 2017) – Paxis LLC, announced the launch of their new company and its pioneering additive manufacturing and 3D printing WAV technology.  An entirely new, scalable, industrial additive manufacturing technology, WAV (Wave Applied Voxel) is designed to conquer the limitations of existing technologies, with projected speeds of 4x, 8x, 24x+ of the fastest large vat systems on the market. WAV has exponentially upgradeable speeds with modular hardware expansions, all while yielding a lower cost of operation.

The patent pending WAV process by Paxis is an entirely new technology imagined and designed from the ground up, by a small team within CIDEAS Inc. (, an industrial 3D printing service bureau, with its roots dating back to 1998.

Mike Littrell, founder of Paxis LLC and co-inventor of WAV stated, “WAV’s large build area and truly unique production method is ideal for large investment casting masters, large parts and large batch builds of smaller parts built on one platform.

“WAV (pronounced wave) is a truly scalable, modular industrial additive manufacturing technology, which is expandable in both build size and speed.  The attributes of the WAV process will allow resin developers to re-think material development which was hindered by the limitations of previous technologies.”

Paxis is currently seeking investment partners.  For more information visit



Paxis LLC was founded in 2016 by Mike Littrell.  With nearly 20 years experience in the additive manufacturing industry, Paxis is the second company to be formed by Littrell.  For more information on the WAV additive manufacturing process and technology, visit
