3D printer is affordable, fast and easy to useZ Corporation has unveiled what is claimed to be the world's first automated, monochrome 3D printer and the company's most affordable automated 3D printer to date, making advanced rapid prototyping technology more accessible to mainstream engineers and machine builders. Like other Z Corporation 3D printers, the ZPrinter 350 converts 3D data into physical models much as desktop printers convert word-processing files into physical documents.

According to Z Corporation, the affordable ZPrinter 350 is unlike other 3D printers in that it delivers high-end functionality such as:

  • automatic material loading
  • snap-in binder cartridges
  • integrated recycling of unused build material
  • self-monitoring operation
  • control from both the desktop and printer
  • 20mm/hour vertical build speed
  • 203 x 254 x 203mm build size
  • 300 x 450dpi resolution
  • office-safe build materials
  • aggressive dust-control
  • zero liquid waste

John Kawola, Z Corporation CEO, comments: "The ZPrinter 350 gives a lot more engineering departments access to advanced 3D printing technology at a value price. ZPrinting is going to improve the quality of their products, speed their development processes, and ultimately help the bottom line."

The ZPrinter 350 also shares the advantages of the entire ZPrinter line, including:

  • Low operating costs (said to be one-fifth that of other technologies
  • Fast print speed (prototypes are claimed to be produced five to ten times faster than with other systems
  • Ease of use (most operations are performed automatically
  • High throughput (multiple models can be printed simultaneously
  • High resolution (enables complex geometries and intricate details to be reproduced)
  • Safety and office compatibility (no cumbersome support structure to be cut out or dissolved
