Stratasys has expanded the product line of 3D Printers with the uPrint Plus, an enhanced version with lots of new features with the price still under $20,000.
The first 3D Printer from Stratasys is the Dimension uPrint introduced a year ago. According to the company the Dimension uPrint is the world’s best-selling 3D printer. The printers build models layer-by-layer using ABS plastic, one of the most widely used thermoplastics in today’s injection-molded products. Dimension 3D printers allow users to evaluate design concepts and test models for functionality, form and fit. It is still magic for me to watch a 3D printer in action.
The new Dimension uPrint Plus can print in eight colors of Stratasys ABSplus material, making it easier for designers to differentiate individual assembly components and better depict their product. The printer has a build envelope of 8 x 8 x 6 in (203 x 203 x 152 mm) – 33 percent more volume than the uPrint, enabling larger models. uPrint Plus offers two resolution settings – 0.010 in (0.254 mm) and 0.013 in (0.330 mm) – to give users additional print options.
The uPrint Plus has a small footprint for true desktop use [25 x 26 in (635 x 660 mm)].
The new 3D printer will be available for shipment in March through authorized Stratasys resellers. Via the site.
