Kodak’s new Portrait 3D Printer is a reliable manufacturing system capable of producing end-use parts in a wide variety of materials. Its solid steel structure, quality components and careful design result in a high uptime with low maintenance costs, said the OEM. Its dual extruder solution permits printing of more complex objects with a better surface finish, and can achieve high speeds without sacrificing printing accuracy. Although open to using third-party filament, Portrait’s cartridges and enclosed chamber prevent Kodak 3D Printing Filament from absorbing humidity or dust, while enabling its sensors and software to fully control the printing process. The fully-enclosed chamber also controls the printing environment and reduces warping when printing large objects. The printer’s built-in camera, multi-language touchscreen, and full connectivity allow remote supervision of the device and of all user activity.
Interior colour lighting indicates the printer’s state and any need for user intervention – even at a distance. Its air filtration system eliminates odours and microscopic particles. A secondary thermistor prevents hotends from overheating. Superior connectivity includes Wi-Fi, USB pendrive and exceptional integration with email, file sharing services and social networks. Total print volume is 200 mm x 200 mm x 250 mm (8″ x 8″ x 10″) and the printer’s dimensions are 455 mm x 433 mm x 451 mm (18″ x 17″ x 18″) with a weight of 27 Kg (60 lbs.). Product release is scheduled for March of 2018.
