Interview with  Xioneer CEO Andrei Neboian at the TCT Show

Interview with Xioneer CEO Andrei Neboian at the TCT Show

Xioneer impressed me with its multiple material bays that let one pre-dry filament inside the printer. In this way, one could condition the filament on the machine itself and prepare it for 3D printing. With hygroscopic filaments such as PLA performance is significantly retarded and the material becomes brittle making it difficult to print. Polyamide […]
