There are a number of prototyping and 3D printing systems available today. These printers transform computer models into actual 3D objects. Z Corporation 3D printers are the fastest commercially available printers. Their fast speed, low operating cost and high quality models make them most popular in today’s time. These printers are affordable in their price range and are automated so easy to use in daily office or any other commercial use. The different types of 3D printers can be described as follows:
ZPrinter 310 Plus
The ZPrinter features 3D viewing, text labeling and scaling functionality. It can build the layers with a speed of two to four layers per minute. It is monochromatic printer with the resolution of 300*450 dpi. It weighs about 115 kg and can be easily used in offices or any application area .It provides quick and easy development of models at an effective cost.
The ZPrinter 450 introduces 3D color printing possible for the development of real life objects. The other printer where use a single color at a time, it uses a multitude of colors to enhance the look, feel and the style of the product design. It can be used to add the highlights the text, and use arrows in the model. It has a build speed of about two to three layers per minute and provides a resolution of about 300*450dpi. The print heads provided are two in number one is clear and the other is tricolored. It weighs about 193 kg. It is safe, noise free, clean as there is recycling of the waste material and convenient for use.
Spectrum Z 510
The Spectrum Z 510 is provided with improved accuracy and multi colored models can be designed with accurate precision. The build speed is same as the other printers of two to three layers per minute. It supports a resolution of 600*450 dpi. The number of print heads provide at a time is four in number which is more as compared to the other two available 3Dprinters. The equipment weighs about 400 kg.
All the 3D printers help in getting the models close to their finished design state. The system software of these printers runs on the Window NT, 2000, XP and Vista platforms. They can be used in the offices as they are not as heavy and space consuming as the other options available in the market. These printers provide easy, fast and economic designing of the objects.
