Boston-based Rize Inc has developed a brand new type of 3D printing which eliminates the need for lengthy publish-printing smooth-up tactics.
using a patented technology the corporate calls Augmented Polymer Deposition, its printers are able to imbue plastics with features they didn’t frequently have. as an example, it’s going to be more straightforward to dispose of 3D printed products from the build surface, it’s possible to inject dyes into the product to create parts with patterns, variable hardness and other superpowers.
“We’ve developed a expertise that enables 3D printed elements to have characteristics that wouldn’t in any other case be that you can imagine,” Julie Reece, the company’s VP of marketing explains. “because of this a single 3D printed section can have completely different characteristics. it could be that you can imagine to print a working shoe, for instance.”
the company is at present in beta, however has a beefy* product roadmap and is planning on rolling out its various technologies and functional dyes over the following few years. it is at the moment elevating a $ 5m collection A to wrap up its beta program and convey its subsequent-gen 3D printers to market.
- alas, Rize’s 3D printers can not but print red meat. Sorry.
