Poland seems to be emerging as a hotbed for 3D printing. For the size of the country, it seems to be packed full of 3D printing enthusiasts, and this trend is only getting stronger. Back in May of last year, Polish-based Zortrax launched a Kickstarter campaign for their M200 3D Printer, and quickly surpassed their funding goals. Six months later the company was signing a deal with DELL to provide them with 5,000 Zortrax printers for in-office use.
Another Polish-based company, Endivio hopes to join the successes of Zortrax, with the launch of what they call their 3dBlackJet V260 3D printer.
Endivio, a new company within the space, expects to begin selling this new machine, which was launched at Days of 3D Printing in Kielce, Poland, sometime this month. This new printer looks quite a bit different than many of the other printers we have covered. It is rather large, measuring in at 700 x 460 x 490mm, and features an enclosed heated build chamber. It will also feature dual extruders, one for printing plastic, and the other for support material. Below you will find the complete specifications of the 3dBlackJet V260:
- Print Technology: LPD – Plastic Layer Deposition
- Build Envelope: 26 x 26 x 20 cm
- Print Nozzle Size: 0.3 mm
- Filament Compatibility: 1.75 mm of ABS, PLA, Nylon, PVA, Hips, supporting material
- Max Extruder Temp.: 300°C
- Max Build Platform Temp: 120 ° C
- Warm-up Time for Table: 60 seconds
- Warm-up Time for Head: 90 seconds
- Warm-up Time for Chamber: 8 minutes
- Operating Systems Supported: Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8 -32 & 64 bit)
- File Types: .stl
- Printer Size: 700 x 460 x 490 mm
- Printer Weight: 37 kg
The printer can best be described as fitting in somewhere between the consumer desktop market, and that of the professional manufacturing market. It has many of the features of some of the more expensive professional machines out there, such as the heated chamber, print head cleaner, and print bed cleaner, but still uses a fused polymer method of printing, and is rather affordable for the technology it includes. The 3dBlackJet V260 will be priced at 24,354 PLM (approx. $7,470). Let us know what you think about this new Polish-made 3D printer in the 3dBlackJet V260 forum thread on 3DPB.com. Below you will find a short video of the printer in action, as well as further images of some quality prints.
