desktop 3D printer provides high-quality, finely detailed printed models in a compact office-friendly system. It creates smooth surfaces, complex geometries, small moving elements, fine details, and stand-out text. Based on the developer's PolyJet Photopolymer Jetting Technology, the Alaris30 creates models suitable for painting, vacuum forming, and functional, fit and form testing. The machine operates as a network printer, letting multiple designers in the office send-in files to be printed. The printer uses sealed 1 kg cartridges of resins and the printed models are fully cured on the 300 x 200 x 150-mm build tray. Objet Geometries Inc.
