First Look at Two New Professional 3D Printers from Sharebot

Share this Article

Earlier this week, Italy-based Sharebot, which manufactures professional 3D printers, announced that it had welcomed two new shareholders, both of which already distribute the company’s 3Delux dental 3D printer. Now, the company has let 3DPrint.com in on its own formnext announcements with a first look at its upcoming releases, about which Sharebot will be sharing more information in the coming week.

“At Formnext, we will present our new professional 3D printers ready for industry,” Sharebot says. “A new line of products for manufacturing and R&D departments.”

First up is the brand new Antares, a 120 kg professional SLA printer with a 150 mW UV laser for curing photosensitive resins. It can produce very detailed prints, thanks to its high resolution, and offers Internet access and remote print management, just like all of Sharebot’s other professional 3D printers.

The printer has a build size of 250 x 250 x 250 mm, a Z axis resolution of >0.05 microns, and ±0.1 precision. Suggested material for the printer is the dedicated, rigid PR-S resin, though other compatible materials will include CAST-S, HTEMP-S, HARD-S, and CLEAR-S beginning next year.

PR-S was used to make a 170 x 135 x 105 mm engine, with 0.01 mm layers, on the Antares 3D printer over a period of about 37 hours, showcasing a print that satisfies ASTM mechanical properties.

The Antares is compatible with all of the main slicing software on the market, though the company personally recommends using Cura, Kissslicer, Slic3r, and Simplify3D.

Sharebot will also have its large FFF Qxxl printer at the show, an evolution of its Sharebot Q and the final version of the  Q XXL prototype shown at the recent TCT Show.

The professional 3D printer combines the company’s largest build area – 700 x 400 x 300 mm – with the remote management, Sharebox3D interface, and print bed auto-calibration system that are mainstay features of the Q.

The Sharebot Qxxl offers faster printing processes with its 0.8 mm nozzle, which can get up to a maximum temperature of around 260°C. It has a Z axis resolution of >0.2 microns, ±0.2 precision, and a suggested PLA-S material; compatible materials include ASA, Nylon-Carbon, Nylon-Glass, TPUre, ABSolute, and PPlight.

3D printing and manufacturing professionals will be able to use the new Sharebot Qxxl as an innovative and advanced workflow tool to help transform the workplace in today’s Industry 4.0 environment; the printer can also be used to make large prototypes, such as airflows for mechanical engineering.

Sharebot will also be bringing its professional SLS SnowWhite 3D printer, which was first introduced at the TCT Show in 2014 and was released to the market two years ago.

The low-cost and versatile SnowWhite is a popular choice for universities, research centers, and manufacturers, and uses a CO2 laser to sinter a large range of professional thermoplastic powders. It has a print speed of 25 mm per hour, a 100 x 100 x 100 mm build volume, and can begin a print job with just 300 g of material.

You can see the Sharebot Antares, Qxxl, and SnowWhite at the company’s stand A48 at formnext next month. 3DPrint.com will also be present in Frankfurt to see the new machines in person and to learn more on-site about the all of the latest 3D printing technologies and products during the busy event, for which announcements have already been rolling in regarding some interesting new releases we can expect to see.

The show begins on November 14th, and among the many introductions anticipated already are that Renishaw will be launching several new products at formnext, and Materialise plans to officially release the latest version of its Materialise Magics 3D printing data preparation software. LPW Technology and SABIC are both introducing new AM materials, while XJet will debut its new 3D printer and Stratasys will be making several new technology announcements at the show, though so far the company has kept mum about the specifics.
