Kodak originally showed off their 3D printer named Portrait quite a while ago, promising its launch in 2018. The company has since shown it off at Formnext and has now officially released it for sale. Aside from the printer itself the company has also put up a whole range of diverse filaments and an online IT-compliant print management software. The company is positioning the Portrait 3D printer as a multi-material and multi-purpose desktop solution.
The printer has a 200 x 200 x 235 mm print volume and a dual extrusion system with automatic nozzle lifting. The company also states that the Portrait is capable of producing parts with a variety of materials. This is due to a host of extra features like swappable nozzles, high temperature yield and the intricacies of the dual extrusion system, which combine to give it a lot more versatility than one would expect.
Other features include an auto-leveling print-bed and a magnetically attached print surface. The Portrait can also achieve a 20 micron layer resolution. Its extensive remote monitoring options let users observe their print process in real-time from across the globe if need be.
Kodak Portrait, Filaments & Extras
While the Portrait, on its own, does not offer something wildly new, it enables you to print with a wide range of materials. ABS, Flex 98, HIPS, Nylon 6, Nylon 12, PETG, PLA+, PLA Tough, PVA and third-party filaments are all printable with the Portrait.
One of the big advantages Kodak are pushing for is the connectivity with the Kodak 3D cloud software. Users will have free access to this IT-compliant printer management software created by 3DprinterOS. It allows any user to manage a print farm for any number of machines at any number of locations, remotely. Users can access via Wi-Fi or LAN port and slice online, monitor their prints and receive real-time updates.
