Dimension 1200 ES 3D Printer

‘See your designs come to life with our 3D Printer’

  • It will turn 3D CAD files into functional durable 3D models that can be discussed and tested.
  • It uses ABSplus modelling material, a production grade thermoplastic that is durable enough to perform virtually the same as production parts.
  • The models will have customer proven toughness – from commercial sprayers tested at pressures up to 60 psi, to final parts on M1 tanks normally machined in aircraft-grade aluminium.
  • Models are printed from the bottom up with precisely deposited layers of modelling and support material. There’s no waiting for models to ‘cure’ they are ready for support removal right from the printer. The supports are simply snapped off to reveal the final model which can then be drilled, tapped, sanded and painted.
  • Build size 254 x 254 x 305mm, layer thickness .254mm or .330mm of precisely deposited ABSplus model and support material.
  • The printed models will help you check form, fit and function and correct errors before your product goes into production.
  • Versatile enough to produce functional models, molds, patterns, customised tools and fixtures.
