You know the market for desktop 3D printers is coming of age when several large and established companies begin testing the waters. Earlier in the year, we saw Autodesk announce their Spark platform, as well as their very own 3D printer, which should launch within the next few months. Just last month, Dremel, known for their power tool line, particularly routers, announced that they too are entering the desktop 3D printer space with the Idea Builder.
This week, yet another established company has announced that they will be testing the waters of this rapidly expanding market. InnoVISION Multimedia Limited, a Nvidia AIB partner, known for their wide selection of GPUs and cutting-edge multimedia PC hardware products, has just introduced two new 3D Printers. The first is the inno3D Printer M1 which features the following specifications:
- Printer Technology: Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF)
- Build Envelope: 140mm x 140mm x 150mm
- Printer Weight: 11kg
- Printer Size: 49cm x 43cm x 59cm
- Layer Resolution: 0.10 – 0.25mm
- Filament Type/Size: PLA, ABS & Nylon, 1.75mm
- Nozzle Size: 0.3mm
- Nozzle Temperature: 270°
The M1, which has an enclosed build chamber, also features auto Brace Creation Technology (BCT) which allows for the printing of floating objects with ease, as well as a touch screen user interface. This printer is listed at €1,170 (approx $1,475).
The second machine is called the inno3D Printer D1. This printer has all of the same general specifications as listed above, but is redesigned. Instead of featuring a more sleek enclosed build chamber, the D1 has a much more rugged look. Built on a metal chassis, with a completely open build area, this machine looks more like something you would find in a garage or manufacturing facility than an office or living room like the M1. Just like the M1, this printer is listed at €1,170 (approx $1,475). Note that neither machine is listed on the Inno3D website as of yet, but instead are listed on a couple of reseller sites at these prices.
Established in 1998 InnoVISION Multimedia Limited, has R&D teams in both Hong Kong and Shenzen, China. It will be interesting to see how well these machines sell, especially within the Asian market, and if the company extends their offerings further in the future. Let’s hear your thoughts on these new machines in the Inno3D M1 & D1 3D printer forum thread on 3DPB.com. The M1 will be on display at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair October 13-16. Below you will find a video about the M1 in Dutch:
