3D Platform 3D printers are designed specifically for engineering, design and manufacturing environments. These heavy-duty, industrial-strength 3D printers offer incredible accuracy and consistency, not to mention unparalleled reliability and support.
There are two key 3D printers by 3D Platform – the 3DP1000, and the 3DP Workbench. The 3DP1000 and 3DP Workbench both have the same 3D printing components and the same 950 x 850 x 500 mm build volume. The difference between them comes down to form factor; the 3DP1000 is a large standalone unit, while the 3DP Workbench has its own solid hardwood workbench and tool drawers built in. The 3DP1000 is better suited to design and engineering environments with space to spare; the 3DP Workbench to those that don’t.
Both 3D Platform models boast a 70 - 100 micron layer resolution and both the 3DP1000 and 3DP Workbench will print ABS, HIPS, nylon, PLA and PVA, of any make, thanks to their open source filament systems. Due to this versatility, 3D Platform printers are ideally suited to prototyping and production. You have the potential to realise 90 per cent savings versus using a printer with proprietary materials, and with larger nozzle sizes available and a print speed of 70-100 mm/sec thanks to SurePrint Technology, you’ll be printing quickly too.
