Work with the Widest Range of 3D Printing Materials with the Series 1 Pro

Posted by Admin on Aug 4, 2017 3:46:58 PM

Just as the technology in Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) continued to improve over the years, more and more 3D printing materials continue to emerge on the market as well. These developments have opened up more opportunities for the end users to explore different and better applications for 3D printing.

At Type A Machines, our objective is to empower design professionals and manufacturers as they move into the 3D manufacturing era. A big part of this is to provide solutions that allow our customers to work with various filaments to help them deliver functional, durable parts and take their work from prototype to product. The result is the industrial-grade 3D printer that can work with the widest range of materials - the Series 1 Pro. Equipped with Cura Type A, a powerful slicing engine with optimized profiles for over 80 materials, and the unsurpassed capability and reliability of the G2 extruder, the Series 1 Pro is a versatile machine that prints various types of materials with ease.

Introducing Palette+: Bringing Multi-Material 3D Printing to Series 1 Pro

Posted by Kim Carbon on Jun 19, 2017 7:00:00 AM

Multi-material 3D printing has come to the Series 1 Pro.

Last October 2016, we announced our partnership with Canada-based 3D printing technology company, Mosaic Manufacturing Ltd, bringing multi-color printing to the  Series 1 Pro 3D printer, through Palette -- a technology that combines four filaments into a single strand. It was a revolutionary collaboration aimed at solving our customers’ challenges of printing multiple filaments. Since then, Mosaic has continued to develop the core technology of Palette, enabling 3D printers to do not only high-quality multi-color printing but more importantly, multi-material printing.

Making with 3D Internal Structures

Posted by Brandon Langdon on Jun 24, 2016 6:30:00 AM

As a maker, I only use 3D internal structure at this point. I used to be a big fan of the honeycomb but like others, it only has predictable properties along one axis. I’d like to put this in context by saying that I make props, prototypes, and items that replicate or replace household items.

National Week Of Making: A Father's Day Gift

Posted by Elijah Post on Jun 22, 2016 6:30:00 AM

Type A Machines, like many 3D printer companies today, was founded by makers like myself. In fact, the majority of Type A employees are makers on our own time!

In honor both of the National Week of Making, and Father’s day (A little late, I know) I have been working on a project to fix up some cherry copita glasses that took a spill a few months ago. The glassware belongs to my father, and so I thought I would have a go at repairing them.
