Kodak and Smart International, the authorized global brand licensee of 3D printing, are pleased to announce North American and European availability of the KODAK Portrait 3D Printer. In conjunction with this announcement, The KODAK Portrait 3D Printer will be on display at the Formnext industry tradeshow in Frankfurt, Germany, November 13th – November 15th.
Positioned for the 3D desktop professional market, the KODAK Portrait Printer consistently delivers accurate results and remains user-friendly. The KODAK 3D Printer will approach this growing arena of imaging with distinctive features such as the dual extrusion system and a fully enclosed all-steel structure, allowing high-temperature builds, and is complemented with enabling software and a wide range of high-quality materials.
The dual extrusion system features automatic nozzle lifting and swappable PTFE and all-metal hotends for optimal material compatibility. Featuring an intuitive touchscreen, automatic leveling and calibration, and preset print parameters for every material, the KODAK Portrait 3D Printer is ready to use straight from the box for those already familiar with the technology or newcomers with creative needs.
With free access to the KODAK 3D Cloud, an IT-compliant printer management software created by 3DprinterOS, it is now possible to manage a print farm for any number of machines, in any number of locations, from anywhere in the world. Users can access via Wi-Fi or LAN port and slice online, monitor their prints and receive over-the-air updates.
Using the 3D printer, environments ranging from classroom, laboratory, office or studio, users can print highly-precise creative designs. The KODAK Portrait 3D Printer has a fully-enclosed print chamber with HEPA and activated carbon filter, reducing unwanted odors and keeping fingers away from hot moving parts. The wide range of filaments are not limited to different grades of PLA, but also offer ABS, Flex 98, HIPS, PETG, water soluble PVA and two grades of Nylon. They are specially manufactured and packaged to ensure low moisture and high dimensional accuracy, and come in a wide color palette, including, of course, Kodak’s Trade Dress Yellow.
The KODAK Portrait 3D Printer will be shown at Formnext in Booth J71 in Hall 3.1, where there will also be a press conference in Room Fragment on Thursday 15th November at 4:00pm.
“We are looking at the future of 3D printing and manufacturing, and our KODAK Portrait 3D Printer has been designed to be best-in-class, with capabilities that have the potential to disrupt the traditional manufacturing systems, leading to cost-effective solutions which can reduce environmental impact, with printers speaking to each other across the globe. We are very happy to have collaborated with Kodak and look forward to many future endeavors.’’ said Roberto Gawianski, CEO, Smart International.
“We are delighted to launch the new 3D printer with Smart International and build upon our excitement about this growth industry and the impact that it can have on professional 3D printing and imaging overall,” said Joel Satin, Director of Brand Licensing and Vice-President, Consumer and Film Division, Kodak.
