Based on the rather cumbersomely-named MH3000R1, the new RoVa3D Printer now includes up to five print heads to allow multi-material, multi-color printing.
This five nozzle printer allows for outputting an object with five different colors throughout the object and it does it without stopping to switch filament.
ORD Solutions, the Canadian firm responsible for the RoVa3D, say it's "not just a printer with more nozzles. It is a superior printing platform in every way."
Featuring side mounted extruders to reduce weight and increase speed, the printer also includes all metal hot ends capable of printing at any temperature up to 450°C. This makes the device capable of printing in any filament material, from polycarbonate, to nylon, to vinyl, or with alloys like carbon fiber PLA and standard ABS and PLA plastics.
The RoVa3D ships fully assembled and ready to print right out of the box. Constructed from an aerospace alloy frame for rigidity and long service life, the RoVa3D has a flat print surface with a 100 micron tolerance from edge to edge, lighted print bed for easier monitoring of print progress, an electronically controlled liquid cooling system that is automatically engaged during a print, an optional touch screen and SD Card printing.
Founder and Chief Architect of ORD Solutions, Chris Gibson, says the new printer is an extension of the MH3000R1.
"Now that the MH3000R1 is in the hands of our original Kickstarter backers, we've had some time to work on this new version," Gibson said. "We've also received lots of great feedback from these initial users that have helped us improve our printer and make it even better. And the best part is, so far, all of these upgrades are fully backwards compatible. We can supply owners of the MH3000R1 with the parts to upgrade their printer and make it equivalent to our new model. So we added a Kickstarter reward for them to do just that."
Founded in 2010 and located in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada, ORD Solutions manufactures and sells 3D Printers, supplies and accessories, and provides 3D Printing Consulting Services.
You can have one of your own for $2,599, and if you happen to own the previous version, you can upgrade for $499.
