The Dimension 3D Printing Group, a business unit of Stratasys Inc., reached a milestone by being the first to ship more than 1,000 systems in one year. With the introduction of the new Dimension 768 and 1200 series machines, the company expects future sales to be even stronger. According to Jon Cobb, vice president of 3D printing for Stratasys, "We are not only meeting the needs of our customers but also expanding the marketplace by offering a wider array of affordable 3D printing technology choices for designers and engineers worldwide."
The Dimension 768 and 1200 are based on the same platform as their predecessor, but sport a new, stylish design. The Dimension 1200 has a 57 percent larger build envelope and promises faster builds. Both are offered as BST-break-away supports- and SST-soluble supports-models, and all systems come with upgraded Catalyst EX software. Dimension 768 starts at $18,900, and Dimension 1200 starts at $21,900.
The 3D printing revolution seems to have a knack for quickly moving technology ahead by way of collaborative effort and even a little friendly competition -- all of course in the name of scientific advancement.
Advantech has launched a new series of motion-control I/O modules to meet the increased demands that come with more distributed industrial systems that require control of a growing number of axes and devices.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
