3D printed objects often stick to the build plate and can be hard to remove, and the innovative team at Netherlands-based 3DSVP says that they have the solution to the problem. The new innovation, Zinomat, is meant to ensure that when you remove your 3D prints from the build plate no damage will occur, and removal is a breeze..
The company says they plan to demonstrate and launch this product later this month, during the 3D Printshow in London on May 21-23. The Zinomat is designed to obviate the need for tape, Kapton, or glue, and it consists of two parts: a flexible top mat and a magnetic bottom mat that can be easily “clicked” off a 3D printer’s build plate.
According to the company, Zinomat can be reused and works with virtually all FDM/FFF 3D printers.
“Through experience in the 3D world I noticed certain annoyances within 3D printing,” says the man behind this unique innovation, Norman van Beek, the owner of 3DSVP. “I searched for the ideal 3D printmat which would be easy to use, long lasting and recyclable.”
3DSVP is a service bureau where users can upload their designs for 3D printing or select existing 3D models which can be customized–from phone and tablet cases to jewelry to lighting. The company is headed up by Hanneke van Pampus and van Beek, and operates its retail space in Haarlem, the Netherlands. There, they offer laser sintering additive manufacturing services via EOS and a full range of materials and other 3D printers.
3DSVP says their goal main is “to customize your life.” From the ‘design your own’ products to the ready-to-print models, they say the objects get produced immediately when you order them. The company says their mission is to “share the unlimited possibilities of 3D printing” and offer professional services.
The Zinomat is van Beek’s answer to the problem. While he doesn’t provide many key details about the Zinomat at this point, you will be able to check it out after the London show at 3DSVP.com.
Does the Zinomat sound like the solution you’ve been looking for? Let us know if you’re interested, and any insights and expectations you might have for it, in the Zinomat from 3DSVP forum thread over at 3DPB.com.
