We like really big 3D Printers

ZCorp, acquired by 3D Systems, have introduced the ZPrinter 850, with the following characteristics:
  • A build envelope of 20 x 15 x 9 inches (508 x 381 x 229 mm)
  • Print as many as 96 baseball-sized models in a single build
  • Print in 390,000 colors
  • 600 x 540 dpi produces parts with fine detail and accuracy

"We're ZPrinting footwear designs nonstop, and the additional capacity will help us better meet the demand of our R&D teams.  The ZPrinter 850 could also open up new uses for sporting equipment where we really need large, colorful prototypes. I'm certain we'll see a huge demand for this new in-house capability." -- Dave Schwirian, model shop/RP manager, Nike
