MiiCraft launch their printer powered by Materialise software.
Following on from the news yesterday that Materialise were stepping into the desktop FDM world with the announcement of the Leapfrog Build Processor they’ve also had a go at desktop DLP 3D printing too by launching a build processor for the new MiiCraft+ machine.
Rays Optics, the parent company of MiiCraft, have launched the second generation of their machine with improvements garnered from customer feedback in the two years since the original machines was launched.
New features of the sleeker MiiCraft+ include a mini-PC built in for standalone capability, wireless access to the build process, a micron level that is adjustable from 5 microns to 200 microns.
But the real story is the build processor, Materialise have worked in tandem with MiiCraft to create a platform that integrates the stability Materialise are known for with an easy-to-use front end.
The aim is for Materialise build processors to replicate that of 2D printing drivers, requiring very little skill from the user in positioning, automatic support generation or adjustment of the z-axis.
Coupled with the Leapfrog Builder this movement from Materialise, whose software massively aided the adoption of 3D printing into industry, into the desktop 3D printing industry can only mean good things consumers, prosumers and the industry as a whole.
