2 Powerful New Materials for the Omni 3D


Introducing THERMEC™ ZED and XSTRAND™ GF30-PP. These two exciting new materials are the perfect companion for the Omni 3D, our flagship FFF 3D printer with a 0.5m³ build volume.

THERMEC™ ZED combines PEEK-like properties with easier printing and post-processing, while XSTRAND™ GF30-PP is over two times stronger and stiffer than standard ABS and PA6 filaments.


from Italian filament specialist Filoalfa

THERMEC™ ZED is a thermoplastic filament, purpose-built for high-end applications that require a high level of chemical resistance as well as exceptional mechanical properties.

It is an excellent alternative to PEEK, but a lot easier to print and post-process.


— Chemically inert, unaffected by know solvents up to 200°C
— Flame retardant and self-extinguishing
— Highly elastic and resilient
— Excellent layer adhesion, for minimal warping


Glass Fiber Reinforced Polyamide 6, from US composites specialist Owens Corning

The XSTRAND™ line aims to take additive manufacturing performance to the next level. Its GF30-PP glass fiber filament is no different, boasting strength and resilience well-above many popular materials for FFF printing, including carbon-fiber filled ABS, neat PP and standard PA6.

It is up to 250% stronger and stiffer when compared against competitive ABS and PA6 filaments, making it ideal for functional prototyping and industrial applications.


— Very stiff and strong
— Excellent layer adhesion, for a greatly reduced warping effect
— Large operational temperature, ranging from -20°C to 120°C
— Good chemical and UV resistance

Forget tooling with 3D Systems' Figure-4


Introducing 3D Systems’ Figure-4, an ultra-fast SLA 3D printer which combines the speed and scalability of a factory machinery with the versatility of 3D printing. Thanks to developments in robotics, CAD/CAM software, 3D printing materials, and SLA technology, it is now possible to mass-produce parts without tooling, and Figure-4 is the industry’s first tool-free digital moulding solution.

Figure-4 Production: in 1984, Chuck Hull came up with an innovative solution for the rapid production of SLA parts. Now, more than 30 years later, those ideas have finally been realised.



Figure 4 Production features up to 15 times faster print speeds than other 3D printing technologies, automated material handling, and integrated post-processing, making its throughput and time-to-part the fastest of any additive manufacturing technology in the world.


Up to 20% lower part cost compared to traditionally manufactured parts and operations, with no time or money lost to tooling. Thanks to a high-degree of automation, it is possible to achieve high productivity with minimal hands-on processes.


Figure-4 can print in over 30 materials, for a broad range of requirements. These include strong, rigid materials for production applications; castable materials optimized for jewelry patterns; and elastomeric materials ideal for iteration and design verification of rubber-like parts.

Easy to Scale

For those who want immediate scale, the Figure-4 Production is a fantastic solution. For others who want to scale more gradually, the Figure-4 Modular is perfect, allowing users to continually add print cells as and when the need arises.

Introducing the Enhanced FUNMAT HT


The world of desktop printers just got an exciting new upgrade. This week, Intamsys announced the release of an improved version of their FUNMAT HT 3D printer, the so-called "Enhanced FUNMAT HT".

The printer's new features include three of the most requested improvements from FUNMAT users, including: 

  • auto-levelling;
  • 4 independent drivers; 
  • a ceramic glass build plate.


This new feature makes print preparation easy and convenient. Instead of spending time tinkering with settings, you can now get straight to printing.

Check out the video below to see the new auto-levelling feature in action.



Each of these four new drivers is optimised for high-performance. Together, they are responsible for filament loading and controlling the X-axis, Y-axis and Z-axis.  This powerful new addition brings significant improvements to print precision and speed, as well as to the reliability of the equipment.



Out with the old and in with the new! In the Enhanced FUNMAT HT, Borosilicate Glass is replaced with Ceramic Glass replaces , which has higher inflexibility and less thermal deformation. Plus, the addition of PI film increases the printer's heating efficiency.

Geomagic Freeform 2019


Take a look at the powerful new features inside the latest edition of Geomagic Freeform, available now!



Geomagic Freeform 2019 introduces new functionality that makes it radically easier for more people to design in Freeform no matter their experience level, automate and speed up repetitive modelling tasks to increase productivity, and ensure more consistent results.

  • Dynabot™ Automation is a revolutionary addition to Freeform, introducing advanced record and playback macro capability that significantly speeds repetitive customization and production workflows. Users can apply logic to recorded sequences, edit parameters, and insert user prompts and instructions. This complete set of automation capability will greatly increase our production-customers speed of workflow, and allow them to onboard new production design processes much faster.
  • UI Customization (including palette filtering and new color schemes) allows you to customize your user interface based on individual preferences for an enhanced experience.
  • Guide Curves for Autosurfacer lets you leverage pre-drawn curves to define boundaries for key regions and assign their edge continuity.
  • Pattern Piece & Axis Marker Enhancements let you pattern sets of objects along multiple paths all at once.
  • New Touch X USB Support gives you the convenience, precision, and reliability of the latest Touch X haptic device improvements.
  • Enhanced Color Management makes Boolean color and clay/mesh conversion more predictable and gives you new levels of control.
  • Enhanced Favorites List now supports multiple columns and displays tool icons.
