Another Sub-$10K 3D Printer

By on June 4th, 2009 in blog


This one is from Solido, whose new entry into the market is the SD300 Pro 3D Printer, and it looks very attractive. Highlights:
  • Includes SD View, a 3D modeling system and controller that directly integrates with the printer and can even monitor consumables status during prints
  • SD View can import .STL files from any other modeling system
  • Print media is a PVC / adhesive combination
  • Model output is “rugged” and “can be machined, drilled, finished and painted and show no distortion over time”
  • Material is sold in 7.5Kg kits (a roll sheet of PVC, Adhesive cartridge and a release agent)
  • Colors available are: slightly amber-tinted transparent, Red, Blue, Black and “Cream”
  • Layer thickness is 0.168mm
  • Build chamber is a moderate 160 x 210 x 135 mm
  • Weight with cartridges installed (45Kg)
  • Sound pollution: only 65db!
  • Windows only, sigh
This one looks like a great start for a new product.
