There’s no shortage of new 3D printers on the market. However, many of them only differ in terms of aesthetics – there’s no real advantage in terms of capabilities and features.
Compare the best 3D printers on the market, and you’ll discover that it’s really just a case of “the same old, same old”. However, Raise3D is looking to change that.
The company just debuted three brand new printers, all of which feature amazingly high resolution. What should you know about them?
The New Raise3D Printers
Raise3D started out as a Chinese 3D printer manufacturer, but quickly grew into an international company. They’ve designed and unveiled three new printers, the N1, N2 and N2 +. All three printers offer 0.01 mm layer thickness, as well as some important user-friendly features.
“Serious 3D printer users need accuracy to make working parts and assemblies,” the company explains. “They want to spend their time working on the project, instead of spending it tinkering with their 3D printer.
They need reliability and an easy-to-use experience.” The company also noted that consumers are now demanding printers capable of using multiple different filament types – so they designed three.
The primary difference between the three printers is size. They all share a similar design and functionality, and they all offer high-resolution prints.
The N1 offers an 8 x 8 x 8 build volume. The N2 offers a 12 x 12 x 12 build volume. The N2 + offers a 12 x 12 x 24 build volume.
While they all differ in terms of size, the common features shared between the three new printers are impressive. You’ll find that they all offer a 7-inch touchscreen, as well as a transparent build area.
All three have a fully functional remote control, as well as out of the box Wi-Fi connectivity. They’re capable of using 10 different filament types, too, and the built-in build-interruption protection means that even if the power goes out during a print, you’ll be able to resume it right where you left off when the lights come back on.
The company also instituted a rigorous quality control problem to ensure that every printer created lived up to customer expectations. “Our evaluation test processes include 13 highly detailed tests to confirm the printing capabilities of the N3 series printers.
We have designed these printers to print very detailed and very long running prints with a wide variety of materials,” the company confirmed.
The result of this innovation and dedication to quality is a series of printers that deliver exactly what consumers expect – reliable operation and the ability to do what they do best (create) rather than focusing on printer maintenance.
If you’re already sold, you’ll have to wait for just a bit before you can buy one of the new printers for yourself. The company expects to start shipping sometime around the end of 2015, although there has been no official pricing mentioned.
