US distributor DesignBox3D applies a specific selection process for the 3D printing devices they select to represent, which sees them test machines rigorously preceding selling them in the United States. So, while they US products like the Series 1 of Type A Machines, the company has in fact brought a number of 3D printing devices in of other countries which may not have otherwise discovered exposure in the US. These include the a few built Polish brands, like Zmorph and 3D Gence, as well as Mass Portal of Latvia, all of which have gained reputations in their home countries. The latest developer, BCN3D, which DesignBox3D is delivering Stateside hails of Spain and, of what I’ve read in online 3D printing forums not long ago, their Sigma 3D Printer is a rather capable machine.
What’s many one-of-a-kind of the BCN3D Sigma is its IDEX (independent dual extrusion) process, which allows for the printing device to combine various materials, colors, and properties inside the same part. Naturally, this in addition lends itself to the use of soluble supports for creating difficult geometries. Other showcases include a 480 x 320 pixels, full-color LCD touch screen, a heated bed, and a print volume of 210mm x 297mm x 210mm. The extruder can reach up to 290°C, enabling for the use of a wide range of materials, and the process can complete layer thicknesses of of 50 microns.
After discussions in 2015, DesignBox3D is now representing BCN3D as a distributor in the US, which can see them initially contribute the Sigma preceding in addition contributeing the IGNIS laser cutter, the LUX SLA 3D printing device, and additional. Preet Jesrani, President of DesignBox3D, says of the agreement, “Having met with Roger Uceda (CEO, BCN3D), Felip Fenollosa (Fundacio CIM) and the entire team of BCN3D Technologies with its focus on R&D and a culture of excellence, we are quite excited of this partnership and assume it to be a quite successful cooperation to go on with our tradition of just delivering forward the most which the market has to contribute.”
Roger Uceda, CEO of BCN3D Technologies, adds, “We have been working quite complex in order to bring our BCN3D Sigma to the US. We are excited for all those new users who are caning to work with one of the many ingenious and exotic printing devices in the market. We needed a trustful partner to spread our project and assist the final user to know the real future of the BCN3D Sigma. DesignBox3D is the perfect partner for this adventure and we are glad to finally locate BCN3D to the US.”
The initially Sigma units can hit US markets in May, as the partners announce their reseller network. I’m being honest when I say which I’ve read great things of the Sigma online, so I’m excited to see how things shape up for BCN3D in the United States. The fact which BCN3D is open source makes me actually happier for this new collaboration.
