Both Full Spectrum Laser and its subsidiary FSL3D are a PR company’s dream. It certainly wouldn’t take any work at all to make them look good, as they have been off to the races in making an authentic and indelible impression on the 3D printing industry with their innovations in laser and cutting technology products.
FSL has held our attention since they arrived on the scene with their Kickstarter campaign receiving a massive $819K in funding, and then another enormous infusion of cash with $10 million from Summer Street Capital. Following through with all the plans they’ve announced and then some, they’ve spent the funds that others entrusted them with on dedicated research, development, and a big follow through with new products.
We just reported recently that FSL and FSL3D were in attendance, full force, at 2015 International CES making a splash with announcements regarding a new product line and a host of other news. And it’s another momentous power punch from FSL and FSL3D today as they hit the scene at the 3D Printer World Convention and Expo in Burbank, CA with their new line of printers brightly on display.
Event goers at the expo have the thrill of checking out the Phoenix Touch 1080P DLP 3D Printer. While the prototype on display is still about the size of a large PC tower, the actual design will be what FSL describes as the height of “three soda cans stacked on top of each other,” and offers a package of features users are going to be clamoring for as they wait for the printers to start shipping out in the second quarter of this year.
What’s everybody so excited about? Besides the smaller size, the Touch 1080P offers:
- Built-in, standalone touchscreen computer
- Advanced software for Macintosh or Windows
- Ball screw for the highest Z-axis motion accuracy in the industry
- Sharp 50 um XY pixel resolution
- FSL3D’s new SuperVat technology
- Build volume of 3.78” x 2.13” x 3.94”
- Final design dimensions of 16” x 13” x 16”
Along with the Touch 1080P will come the Phoenix Touch Pro UV LED which, following the new soda can measuring method, will stand at a height of only two soda cans, according to FSL. Featuring the touchscreen as well, the Touch Pro UV LED will offer all of the same features plus a UV LED bulb expected to last 20,000 hours, and a build volume of 2.5” x 1.6” x 3.9”.
We’ll continue to report on the momentum of both FSL and FSL3D as their new line of 3D printers rolls out to consumers soon.
Running January 29-31, the 3D Printer World Convention and Expo caters to those interested in and passionate about the new wave of innovation in 3D printing technology with exhibits and seminars. 3D printing exhibit booths are sold out at their main event in progress now, which will feature over 100 3D printers, along with 3D scanners, design software. Demos will be happening all over, and event goers will have the chance to enter numerous contests featuring printer giveaways.
What do you think of the features — and smaller size — offered for the new line of Phoenix Touch 3D printers? Are you interested in trying one out, or ordering one? Tell us your thoughts in the FSL Phoenix Touch 3D Printers forum over at 3DPB.com.
