3D Systems 3D Printers help you build speed and efficiency into your design process and the highest quality into your products. The printers are professional, complete physical modeling solutions delivering full-color communication. What's more, they are fast, convenient and easy to operate, allowing you to accelerate the design process and get your products to market ahead of the competition.You already know that speed is the most valuable element in the design and manufacturing process. 3D Systems 3D Printers deliver parts in 1-2 hours instead of days, fueling immediate feedback and decision making. This process acceleration will allow you to design and sell products more competitively. Our full-color printing systems give your engineers a clearer window into the design process. Color conveys important information about parts, including engineering data, labeling, highlighting and appearance simulation. This functionality gives designers the data they need to create and collaborate more effectively throughout the design process.
- The Color Jet Modeling System is the fastest 3D Printer in the world.Each layer is printed in seconds, reducing the time it takes to print a hand-held part to 1-2 hours.
- 3D Systems Color Jet Modeling 3D Printers can create parts from a full 24-bit palette of colors, resulting in multiple color prototypes. This functionality gives designers the data they need to create and collaborate more effectively throughout the design process. Color can be used to communicate important information including engineering data, labeling, highlighting and appearance simulation.
- Companies are using 3D Systems parts in every step of the design process for communication, design review and functional testing. The option of infiltrating parts offers customers the opportunity to produce parts with a variety of material properties to serve a range of modeling needs.
- The office compatible Color Jet Modeling System is straightforward to operate, eliminating the need for a designated technician. The 3D Systems Color Jet Modeling System is based on standard, off the shelf components developed for the ink jet printer industry resulting in a reliable, dependable 3D Printer.
Anvil Prototype & Design specializes in 3D Systems and related technologies that allow us to produce full color, highly detailed, accurate models for communication and design evaluation. High speed, low cost and full color have helped Anvil customers change the way they use prototypes and has allowed them to use models much more often and for an increasing number of applications.
How it works:
Quite simply our process is an output for 3D CAD data. Before three-dimensional CAD systems were in use, two-dimensional drawings were sent to document printers or large format plotters. Now that designs are modeled in 3D, a 3D printer is a natural extension of the design process.
Complex geometries can be easily created directly from your CAD files. Our equipment does this using an additive manufacturing process that build the components layer by layer. To do this, the software "slices“ the CAD file into thousands of thin layers so that a physical model can be built one layer at a time. Ink-jet print heads deposit binder into powder to create each layer.
