A new partnership between XYZprinting and the developer of the VIVE virtual reality (VR) headset will see XYZprinting’s 3D scanners and printers become compatible with HTC VIVE’s VR devices with the aim of consolidating structural design and modelling processes.
XYZprinting, which is currently exhibiting the ICT trade show Computex Taipei, has also unveiled the latest iterations in its da Vinci and Nobel 3D printer ranges. These include:
– da Vinci Nano: a compact and portable 3D printer that is 40 per cent smaller than its predecessor, the da Vinci Junior.
– da Vinci Super: XYZprinting’s largest 3D printer to date, allowing for a maximum build volume of 30cm x 30cm x 30cm. The printer also maintains popular features including auto-calibration to maximise stability and printing quality.
– Nobel Superfine: XYZprinting’s first printer to use DLP (digital light processing) technology, the Superfine is capable of printing using both acrylic and castable resins, and which the company claims will enable users such as jewellers, dentists and designers to be more versatile with their creations.
Commenting from Computex, XYZprinting CEO Simon Shen said: “In the past three years, XYZprinting has successfully secured a leading position in the consumer 3D printing market. As we continue to evolve our technology, we are also getting closer to accessible and affordable business and industrial applications. A future where 3D printers are a key feature of any factory, office, school and home is near and we’re delighted to be spearheading the movement.”
