Interesting Zortrax feature: abs and support filament from the same extruder.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Interesting Zortrax feature: abs and support filament from the same extruder.

Apparently the new Zortrax Inventure printer is able to print abs and support filament from the same extruder!.

So it should not have the problem of one extruder smashing on the layers printed by the other extruder, as there is just one of them.

Besides this, the support material disolves in plain water.

Not much information still on Zortrax site at the moment, athough they are already taking orders.

Does anyone know more about this printer ? (other than what is published on their site).

Yes plain water, WITH the use of an ultrasonic bath.

Not much info as you say. it looks nice though but small build volume.

Well, I have read that is not plain water, it is a "water-based-fluid".

And takes "several hours" for removal process to complete.

Yes, the printing volume 13x13cm is definitely small.

Looks like an alternative FDM printer for customers of SLA printers.
