MCOR passed us images of sample prints from their new MCOR Matrix 300 3D paper printer (that’s right – it uses sheets of paper as it’s build medium.) We’re quite surprised at the quality and features. Look for yourself:
Our 3D paper printer really lends itself to a very different approach in printing this type of model – as well as colour the Matrix 300 can print texture – a brick wall, a cobbled patio, a wood floor and wallpaper on the walls!
We’ve also received some details on the Matrix 300’s specifications:
- Build chamber: 27.7 x 19.0 x 15.0 cm (10.9 x 7.5 x 5.9 inches)
- System weight: 160 kg (350 pounds)
- Material: A4 paper, 80 grams
- Z-Axis thickness: 0.1mm
- Power: 240 volts, 1 kilowatt
The Matrix 300 comes with proprietary software for using existing .STL files – but alas, Windows only.
All that with operating costs of less than one euro cent (or maybe just over a US cent) per cubic centimetre of printout. The price? €29,950 including software for UK and Ireland; no pricing for other locales has yet been set. Initial deliveries to UK and Ireland customers will occur in January!
