pollenAs many of us in the 3D printing industry can attest to, one of the many daunting obstacles to overcome in order to go on growing and progressing additive producing is the aptitude to efficiently print with multiple materials. A number of industry leaders have may already began chiseling away at this issue, as companies like Stratasys and Airwolf 3D have not long ago released their own printing equipment with multi-material 3D printing capabilities. Now, after five long years of tireless R&D work, a relatively unknown company based in France, called Pollen, is looking to manufacture their mark on the multi-material 3D printing circuit.

The new delta 3D printing device released by Pollen, which is named Pam, is not really engineered for the consumer market. Instead, the fresh-faced 3D printing company is targeting their ‘luxury’ 3D printing device towards the pro crowd, aimed at businesses looking to turn it into functional products in a multitude of materials. Pam is capable-bodied of printing with up to four various materials during a single system, mixing two materials together on the go, and is in addition compatible with a wide range of materials, which include effortless fibers, carbon, minerals or metal particles.

The 3D printing device is loaded with bottles filled with pellets of raw materials which include thermoplastics, silicones, composites, and other types, all of which are engineered with industrial-grade high end. The max temperature the printing device can reach is 350°C, producing it compatible with a number of materials with flexible, strengthened, elastic, transparent, and colorful properties.

materialsThe printing device is in addition able-bodied to mend these materials together in order to turn it into a gradient of properties and colors. The printing device can come equipped with four various nozzle sizes, a heated aluminum create plate, and their created-in, all-encompassing Honeyprint software.

According to Pollen, the Pam 3D printing device is able-bodied to reach a high high end resolution of up to 40 μ, and has a relatively sizeable print volume of 30 x 30 cm. Pam is in addition really the speedster, printing with multiple materials at speeds of up to 400 mm/s. It is in addition Wi-Fi and Ethernet enable-bodiedd, allowing users to control the printing device through their web browser. In addition, the printing device’s software stack is engineered inside the 3D printing device, allowing users to print without the require of a desktop. The printing device is by no means created for the consumer market, pretty, Pollen is bringing aim at companies and entrepreneurs looking to take their 3D printing capabilities to the following level.

hardwareAt the moment, the pre-order price for Pam is begining at €8,000 (approximately $9,000 USD) without delivery or VAT included. On the other hand it appears like really the investment, Pam is in fact being marketed as a pro-grade 3D printing device. In addition, Pollen plans on doubling the price of the 3D printing device to €16,000 come 2017, so it appears which their initially batch of 3D printing equipment may in fact be a bargain for ready businesses. According to Pollen, Pam can fundamentally be able-bodied to turn it into products like sunglasses (which include the lenses) and translucent lamps in one shot, and can especially be useful for harsh and functional prototyping, style, and many other applications.

Included with the limited version contribute, customers can in addition learn how to master Pam with the Quick Start pack, which can teach users how to use Honeyprint, controlling and utilizing the many showcases of Pam, and ensuring optimal maintenance of the printing device as well. Pollen plans to begin shipping out their one-of-a-kind delta-styled 3D printing device in April 2017, giving them an enough amount of time to create additional hype for what may soon be a leading game-changer in the pro 3D printing market.
