2.1D Printing with Roland’s VersaUV

2.1D Printing with Roland’s VersaUV 
It’s not exactly a 3D printer, but we’d call it a “2.1D” printer. Basically it’s an inkjet printer equipped with UV-hardened “ink” that can produce a raised effect on the 2D printouts. Another way to look at it is that the VersaUV LEC-300 is a 3D printer with a Z-axis of only 0.04mm.

The USD$50K+ VersaUV printer can print on a very wide variety of materials, and by creative use of the 3D effect, you can print leather-like surfaces, buttons or other tactile schemes.
