“We are excited to unveil our newest 3D printer to the Quant 3D printer lineup,” said Christopher Larocca, President of OK International. “The addition of the Q1000 broadens our existing 3D printer portfolio beyond the benchtop market, providing a significant value proposition for large, high-resolution industrial printing applications.”

Users will be able to rely on the printer for precision and efficiency, with the following details:

  • On-board PC so you can print and manage your Q1000 3D printer without needing a separate computer, as well as storage so you can save jobs to print again later.
  • Print queue management for multiple users, multiple jobs, with notifications.
  • Model software to help with setup and creation of supports.
  • On-board camera offering photos and live video of print production.
  • Large 2kg filament cartridges for higher efficiency, offering variety of material and color.

 “OK International is committed to continuing the innovation of 3D printing technologies across multiple printing platforms and filament materials,” says Larocca.
