3D Platform Launches 3DP Workbench, Large-Format Printer-Workshop Hybrid

By Tyler Koslow

Last time I reported on large-scale, industrial-strength 3D printer manufacturer 3D Platform, their 3DP1000 was making a name for itself within companies and research laboratories across the world. Formerly known as 3DP Unlimited, the Illinois-based 3D Platform has just announced their newest large-scale 3D printer, the 3DP Workbench. The 3DP Workbench has a massive build area of 1m x 1m x 0.5m, and also utilizes industrial-grade mechatronics, which enables precision prints with a 70-micron layer resolution. Planning to release the 3DP Workbench at the end of Q1 2016, 3DP has engineered and designed their newest industrial-grade 3D printer to a more improved and convenient experience all-around.…

CTC Electronic Co. Announces Its First Industrial 3D Printer

By Michael Molitch-Hou

Zhuhai CTC Electronic Co. has quickly grown from a manufacturer of 2D printers to FDM 3D printers to a producer of a wide variety of 3D printing technologies.  With the opening of a large-scale factory and an office in London, the Chinese company seems to have its eyes set on taking over the industry with its low-cost 3D printers.  Now, CTC is following up its 4-in-1 hybrid machine and affordable SLA printer with their first industrial machine, the Riverbase 500.

The $86,000 Riverbase 500 is an industrial SLA machine that relies on laser galvanometer scanning, the same process that many SLA and SLS machines use, in which a mirror bounces the laser onto the print area instead of relying on movement by the laser itself.…

Stratasys Gives Massivit 3D’s Massive 3D Printing Techn a Big Boost

By Tyler Koslow

There’s been a lot of buzz building up around the Israel-based 3D printing company Massivit 3D, who have taken large-scale 3D printing to the next level with their unique technology and a printing volume of 1200 x 1500 x 1800 mm. Massivit 3D showcased their 3D printing capabilities recently by printing a two meter shark for the Silence of the Sharks campaign, a demonstration against the hunting of these majestically viscous sea creatures. And, while they were busy helping to save the sharks, it seems that the 3D printing giant Stratasys had taken notice of Massivit 3D’s large-scale 3D printing technology (perhaps from the window of Stratasys’ own Israel HQ!).…
