3D Platform (3DP), a global leader in manufacturing large-format, industrial-strength 3D printers, announced the pre-release of the WorkCenter 500 – a new extra-large format 3D printer.
“ The overwhelmingly positive response to 3DP’s Excel machine has made one thing clear – not all customers need multiple gantries, and both additive and subtractive capabilities,” stated Jonathan Schroeder, President of 3DP. “Also, many who need an extra-large format machine cannot afford to spend $750k or more. Therefore, we set out to design a purpose-built machine for extra-large format additive manufacturing that wouldn’t break the bank.”
WorkCenter 500 is currently the only machine on the market in the large format category to provide the option of pellet or filament extruder(s) – or both! These high volume extruders offer a choice of throughput rates ranging from 1.3 kg/hr to more than 7.5 kg/hr. Customers can then use a variety of open market filament / pellets and software that can deliver up to a 90% savings versus closed eco-system machines.
3DP is now excepting applications for limited beta-sites and pre-order reservations.
