This Monday 3D Systems announced their newest printer the ZPrinter 850. This is now the largest format ZPrinter with a higher print volume, greater productivity and vibrant full color.
The ZPrinter 850 has double the print volume of its older brother, the ZPrinter 650.
“We’re ZPrinting footwear designs nonstop, and the additional capacity will help us better meet the demand of our R&D teams,” said Dave Schwirian, Model Shop/RP Manager for Nike. “The ZPrinter® 850 could also open up new uses for sporting equipment where we really need larger, colorful prototypes. I’m certain we’ll see a huge demand for this new in-house capability.”
