As innovations in the 3D printing world continue to spring forth from creative minds all over the world on a daily basis, inspiration builds on inspiration, and the energy continues to grow in this new marketplace which is progressing like nothing any of us have ever experienced. An entire world of manufacturers, engineers, artists and designers, and entrepreneurs have grasped on to the magic of digital design and 3D printing, and demand only grows. Amidst that, a tight-knit community–despite the fact that many members are spread far across oceans and continents–of makers, tinkerers, hackers, and beginning hobbyists keep the energy and momentum rolling in all things 3D.
In answer to that, companies and research labs like Global 3D are in a position of being responsible for providing the leading tools in an industry that is causing world transformation in many sectors, with it being easier at this point to list the areas not being affected by 3D printing. A wide range of needs and ever changing project scopes means there is vast space for new hardware, software, and many peripheral products in design and 3D printing. In keeping with that, Global 3D Labs specializes in 3D printing equipment that allows for multiple users. They work to promote accessibility for all, as well as offering as much education as possible in the 3D printing arena, from seminars and talks, to full workshops.
Now, they are releasing two new 3D printers, which are a good mix of a new and contemporary workhorse along with a machine that allows for some more fun.
The Pramaan V3 offers a whole host of innovative features that should be attractive to users, and the Chocobot really speaks for itself, just with its name.
Global 3D Labs sees the Pramaan V3 as a revolutionary new piece of equipment for their users. This is a machine that has what we all enjoy: brains and beauty. Designed with aesthetics in mind for comprehensive form and function, the team at Global 3D made a pretty machine–along with a smart one–because they want to keep encouraging global accessibility and the idea of a 3D printer sitting on every desktop possible. Offering a ‘robust’ build volume, expanded printing capabilities, video, and the best connection options available, the Pramaan V3 is a sturdy 3D printer that allows for the creative process to be a seamless one, with few limits.
Specific specifications are as follows:
- Build volume of 25 x 25 x 25 cm
- Filament sensor which notifies the user of entangled filament
- LCD support
- Capable of printing with PLA
- Dual nozzle capability, allowing for multi-color printing
- Connectivity through cloud, WiFi, USB, and SD card–all allowing for complete remote operation
- On-board camera, providing a live stream of the product being printed
- Improved aesthetic appeal
When it comes to 3D printing and chocolate, there are few individuals whose tastebuds don’t start to perk up. Work and creativity are one thing, but 3D printing and food take things to an altogether different, and much more enjoyable, level.
While we have reported on a couple of other 3D printers available from companies like Choc Edge and 3D Systems with the respective Choc Creator V2 3D printer and the CocoJet, the Chocobot is the first chocolate 3D printer to come from India. Meant for delectable commercial delights, it boasts a build volume of 18 x 18 x 18 cm. The Chocobot also offers a modular head that allows for a variety of options for printing with chocolate of varying types and colors, and can even be used for making molds out of polycarbonate for manipulating liquid chocolate.
