Prodways Group, a French 3D printer producer and service provider, has announced a new Digital Light Processing (DLP) 3D printer through its company Solidscape.
Based in New Hampshire, Solidscape designs and manufactures 3D printers and materials for rapid prototyping and creating master molds. The new resin production 3D printer, SoldiscapeDL, is the first system within the company’s range using DLP technology and is aimed towards the jewelry market.
Prodways acquired Solidscape, a former subsidiary of Stratasys, in 2018. Now, through combining Prodways’ proprietary DLP technology MOVINGLight with Solidscape’s expertise, the companies have created SolidscapeDL.
According to the Prodways Group, currently, around 10% of global jewelry production uses direct 3D printing, mainly in the high-end jewelry segment. Thus, with the aim to “pave the way to the overall jewelry market direct 3D printing revolution”, the company’s objective for Solidscape is to increase this percentage to 50% within 5 years.
As a result, the SolidscapeDL, which will join Prodways Group resin 3D printer portfolio, is targeted at a wider range of jewelry manufacturers for “smarter, more efficient, beautifully precise and profitable” production.
