Share this Article

The 3D printing market seems to be becoming truly global. If we were to go back just one year or so ago, almost all the manufacturers of desktop 3D printers were situated either in the United States, or the UK. gence-1Here we are today, and it seems like every week we see one or two new 3D printer startups emerge, many of them being the first such manufacturers within their home countries.

Today we received information on a Polish company called 3D Gence, who is about to launch their first 3D printer, also called the 3D Gence. The printer which is made in cooperation with scientists and researchers from the Department of Mechanics and Technology at Silesian University of Technology, certainly doesn’t skimp on useful new features.

Using a patented pressure control system in the nozzle, the 3D Gence has an output which is extremely accurate. The printer also features a ceramic build plate, allowing for easy removal of completed prints, while also assuring adequate adhesion during the printing process. The pressure control system of the nozzle is not the only patented featured which has been used within the design of the 3D Gence. Additionally, there is a patented system put in place for the quick removal of printer heads. No unscrewing, loosening of bolts or clamps is required. Just press a little button and the printer head slips right out, and is ready to be replaced. This, along with the automatic calibration system, makes pre-printing preparations quick and easy. Below you will find some of the basic specifications of this new 3D printer:

  • Build Envelope: 205 x 260 x 210 mmgence-2
  • Layer Thickness: 100-400 microns
  • Resolution of Axes X,Y: 100 microns
  • Nozzle Diameter: 0.5mm
  • Filament Size: 1.75mm & 3mm
  • Filament Material Compatibility: ABS, PLA, Nylon, PET, Laywood

The machine, which certainly looks nothing like the majority of Cartesian system based 3D printers on the market, will be priced at 1,999 Euro ($2,670). The company expects to begin selling these machines sometime next month. 3D Gence is also said to be working on a Gence PRO which will cost about 6,000 Euro, and feature an enclosed heated build environment, and a larger build envelope. Details on this printer are still forthcoming.

It’s certainly refreshing to see new companies sprouting up all over the planet, allowing for affordable access to these incredible machines within local markets, and pushing innovation further by increasing global competition. Let’s hear your thoughts on this new printer, out of Poland, in the 3D Gence forum thread on 3DPB.com.
