ComeTrue 3D Printer
ComeTrue 3D has made its first entry into the 3D printing market with the ComeTrue T10 3D Printer launched by Taiwan-based company, MicroJet Technology Co. Ltd.. The full colour desktop machine is said to be a world first in full-colour powder-based desktop 3D printing technology.
The machine uses patented ComeTrue Binder Jetting (CBJ) technology based on plaster-based composite powders and uses a CMYK continuous ink supply system. The machine also allows users to print without the need for support structures.
The ComeTrue 3D printer is designed for use primarily in 3D printing service bureaus, prosumer and education markets. With a build volume of 200x160x150 mm and a resolution of 1200 x 556 DPI, suggested applications include full colour figurines, architectural models, bio-medical modelling and creative projects.
3D printed heart
To accompany the machine, the company has also developed the ComeTrue TD3 Depowder Recycling System for effective powder removal. This fast and compact recycling system is designed to make powder-based 3D printing as clean and easy as possible and ensure the efficiency of post-treatment.
In addition to this, the machine benefits from ComeTrue Print software, which slices STL and VRML 3D files for optimum printing results. Users can also benefit from PixiRite 3D file preparation software derived from Autodesk's Netfabb specifically for ComeTrue 3D printers. PixiRite helps users to repair, edit and modify 3D files before 3D printing.

Currently, the ComeTrue 3D printer is only available in selected countries across Asia and is being presented at various events across the region and in Europe, including the Taipei Int'l Mold & Die Industry Fair in August and Taiwan Excellence Pavilion of 2016 IFA in Berlin. ComeTrue 3D is set to demonstrate some of the latest material developments for the printer at these events including ceramics, glass and metals by Cast Mould.
