Dimension Unveils Industry’s First Large-Format 3D Printers Starting at Just £16,900
02 May 2006
The Dimension 3D Printing Group, a business unit of Stratasys, Inc, has introduced the Dimension 1200 Series, the industry’s first large-format 3D printers starting at only £16,900 plus VAT. The new 3D printers will be on display at Product Development 2006, 17 – 18 May, stand number 513, NEC Birmingham. The Dimension 1200 Series, based on the same reliable platform as Dimension’s current offering, features a build envelope that is 57 percent larger, giving designers and engineers increased flexibility to produce larger, functional 3D models. The new 3D printers also include upgraded Catalyst EX software, providing designers an even easier-to-use toolset for efficiently processing 3D models. The Dimension BST 1200 and SST 1200 are priced £16,900 and £22,500 including delivery, installation, training and 12 months maintenance.
The introduction of the 1200 Series 3D printers follows on the recent price reductions for Dimension’s current line of 3D printers, the Dimension 768 Series. The 768 Series include an updated exterior, and utilize upgraded Catalyst EX software. The Dimension BST 768 and SST 768 are priced £14,900 and £19,500 including delivery, installation, training and 12 months maintenance
“We heard loud and clear from a substantial number of customers that a larger build envelope would assist them in their design and development processes,” said Jon Cobb, vice president and general manager of 3D printing for Stratasys. “With the addition of our new large-format Dimension BST and SST 1200 Series 3D printers to our product portfolio, we are not only meeting the needs of our customers, but also expanding the marketplace by offering a wider array of affordable 3D printing technology choices for designers and engineers worldwide.”
Dimension’s 1200 and 768 Series 3D printers use durable ABS plastic, allowing users to test 3D prints for functionality, form and fit. The Dimension SST models include all the functionality of the BST models, but incorporate an automated soluble support removal system, which gives users greater convenience in the design process by reducing engineering time and enabling the development of prototypes with more complex design geometries.
