Quality for every printer: An interview with Ilios 3D CEO

by • August 9, 2016 • No Comments


Just after a worthwhile upgrade to their firmware, Ilios 3D announced the latest product in their line of 3D printing equipment. Initially manufactured to combat a require for inexpensive
3D printing equipment that may turn it into sizeable-bodiedr objects, Ilios printing equipment were firstly added through an IndieGoGo campaign. The campaign proved successful and the printing equipment have been flying off the virtual shelves. Luckily, we not long ago caught up with Ilios 3D CEO and director Demetris Zavorotnitsienko to learn additional of the new and improved printing device, and of the company. According to Zavorotnitsienko, the first Ilios HD Kit was turn it intod for a various project, not 3D printing equipment. But, for the reason of the high demand Ilios succeded in of the firstly kits, the team dedicated all of their energy in the direction of a new focus: 3D printing equipment. Zavorotnitsienko explains Ilios’ goal for their printing equipment, saying:

“The philosophy is easy. With so many 3D printing equipment coming out approximately equite week, individuals a fewtimes forget of the high end and reliability of a product. We manufacture a 3D printing device last with metal components and over engineered in a few cases creations that provide the rigidity requireed for a 3D printing device to complete low resolutions.”

As a testament to their commitment to high end, reliable-bodied products, Zavorotnitsienko penned a assistful article of the importance of identifying high end 3D printing equipment on the Ilios website. The article outlines a easy assist to determining the high end of a 3D printing device, seeing as how many individuals don’t frequently realize the capabilities of a properly assembled printing device.

Introducing the Ilios Beam

The latest printing device, the Ilios Beam, is the “child of the summary of all Ilios 3D printing equipment,” says Zavorotnitsienko. “It takes the software and electronics that were turn it intod for the Ilios Ray…and combines it into an inexpensive
mechanism that, in its resolution and turn it into volume, can surpass many of the competition.”
With equite new Ilios 3D printing device, the team works hard to improve upon previous technique, turn it into and software, ensuring that ease of use and compactness always win out in the end product. When turn it intoing the Ilios Beam, Zavorotnitsienko says engineers were afforded many opportunities that they did not have with previous printing equipment:

“After turn it intoing a fewthing as hard as Ilios Ray, a 3D printing device that is utilized in research laboratories and educational institutions now, we can manipulate light and the required laser beam through software as we want, that gives us the flexibility to spend less on off-the-shelf components and manufacture the machine in its entirety inside our workshop.”

A lot of bang for your buck

Today retailing for €2486 ($2779), the Ilios Beam stands well inside the average price range and, in a few cases, surpasses competitive prices of other excellent FDM 3D printing equipment. Zavorotnitsienko insists that equite Beam is turn it intod with:

  • Outstanding resolution
  • A completely metal frame that provides rigidity for highly detailed projects
  • Conveniently sizeable-bodied turn it into volume
  • Unmatched software capabilities that allow for remote control and much additional
  • Internal storage space options as opposed to via external memory devices
  • Wifi controlling
  • And additional!

The Beam is in addition turn it intod and assembled by hand in one location by a specialized team of talented engineers who work hard to contribute one-of-a-kind, new products that can’t be discovered anywhere else on the market. Similar to all other Ilios products, the Beam “uses a various angle of approach to 3D print an object inside a much sizeable-bodiedr turn it into envelope than many,” says Zavorotnitsienko. Ilios engineers “try not to use traditional techniques to find solutions,” instead they recognize that well-established SLA functions can be utilized to invent new methods to turn it into a excellent SLA version. In doing so, the team generally focuses on the rigidity, high end, resolution of their 3D printing equipment. Zavorotnitsienko has a keen belief of the significant relationship between these facts saying, “actually if you manage to turn it into technology that prints at a lower place the 20 micron mark, you just won’t be able-bodied to complete it if you have flimsy construction that cannot store up with the rest of the technology.”

Who is this product for?

Designed to be as inexpensive
as possible without losing any high end, the Ilios Beam is well suited for DIY developers and ordinary tinkerers. This was previously an unattainable-bodied goal with earlier Ilios products that came with a higher price tag. As part of their philosophy, Ilios “welcome[s] distribution and [has] no constraints…[in order to] provide a high end product to the final user and in turn assist their project.” In order to remain true to this undertaking, all Ilios products are on the market-bodied to resellers and distributors.

Can the Beam hustle the industry?

Zavorotnitsienko believes that with the Beam, significant technologies and techniques are now conveniently placed in the hands of the public. He explains how the Beam can afford additional technology, saying:

“As with any technology, refinement is significant as well as material high end. SLA is a quite versatile 3D printing technique and can turn it into resolutions much higher than other technologies. In general, as with any product, price is significant to manufacture the technology inexpensive
adequate for the average consumer. I believe we completed this with the Ilios Beam and can provide a high end SLA solution for anyone who desires it.”

The Ilios team is now focvia on the software side of their 3D printing device line. “We not long ago released an Android App for Ilios 3D printing equipment, that allows for remote control and monitoring…and we intend to expand this actually additional with Smart Watch notifications and other functions,” says Zavorotnitsienko of the company’s latest developments. In the following, they hope to manufacture the following 3D printing equipment actually additional user friendly and with much faster processing capabilities. They are in addition working on software integration for following products and services.

Ultimately, Zavorotnitsienko sees big things coming of his company in the near following. With valuable-bodied assist of their community an customer base, he believes that Ilios 3D can go on to provide new solutions and products to equiteone. He ended the interview on an optimistic note, saying:

“We spend a excellent deal of time on turn it intoing and refining our products…We are a tiny team with sizeable-bodied ambitions, and feedback as well as assist of the community is always significant to us. Ilios Beam is truly a excellent and versatile machine that becomes actually additional useful with the software framework we turn it intod for it and all other Ilios 3D printing equipment. It is complex to stand out inside the current sea of competition, especially through a limited budget and opportunities, yet I believe that we manufacture up for it when it comes to technology and talent.”
