The new ZPrinter 350 features automatic powder recycling, break-out and post processing previously found in the higher-end models.
Once the part set up is complete the data is transmitted to the machine over the network. The build begins by first heating the build chamber and then the model is built up layer by layer on the platform. Power is fed in automatically and a complete layer (between 0.089 and 0.102 mm thick) is first spread onto the platform. Next up the areas required for the part are printed with the cartridge fed binding agent which solidifies each layer.
Each subsequent layer is then printed on top of the other until the form of the build is complete. At this stage the automatic powder recycling kicks into action, removing the excess unused powder for reuse later, leaving the completed part/parts.
The next stage is to move the parts over to the post-processing chamber, which sits to the right of the build chamber. Here, an air hose can be used to remove the rest of the powder and the part can be strengthened.
With Z Corp having made a name for itself in color 3D printing, the obvious question is why go monochrome? The first, and most obvious, reason is to save money. This ZPrinter 350 is not only cheaper than the color models but has a marginally lower running cost due to the use of a single binder, rather than separate color ones. But it’s not all down to money, some users simply prefer plain, white prototypes.
The machine dial gives more control over how the printer operates
In relation to the rest of the 3D printing market, the $20,500 price tag is not the cheapest on the market. There are lower cost commercial machines including the Solido and Dimensions’ uPrint, but where the ZPrinter 350 stands out is in its lower cost consumables, impressive throughput and greater build volume.
This coupled with the new high-end features such as powder recycling and integrated post processing makes it an interesting addition to the low-cost 3D printing market.
