WEB EXCLUSIVE: Solido of Israel recently launched a new desktop 3D printer and announced two U.S. distributors. Its model SD300Pro for rapid prototyping or manufacturing finished parts is said to be its most affordable unit yet, priced at $9950. Unlike other 3D printers, the SD300Pro uses the laminated object manufacturing (LOM) process, which involves building up a model in “slices” by laminating and cutting sheets of PVC from a roll. The sheets are 0.168 mm (0.0066 in.) thick and XY plotting accuracy is said to be ±0.1 mm (0.039 in.). The printer is about the size of a desktop document printer (18 x 30 x 17 in.) and maximum model size is 6.3 x 8.3 x 5.3 in. Multiple parts can be build at once to minimize material waste, and Solido is starting a recycling program in this fourth quarter, whereby customers can send excess material and material containers back to Solido in prepaid pouches.

            Solido is now being represented here by SolidVision, Littleton, Mass., supplier of SolidWorks CAD software; and by Enser Corp., Cinnaminson, N.J., a supplier of engineering services and PTC CAD reseller. (800) 323-4679 * www.solidvision.com (856) 829-5522 * www.enser.com
