CREAT3D adds Mcor Colour 3D Printers to range
Thursday, 21 May 2015 | Sabina Gonzalez-George
We are pleased to announce the addition of Mcor Technologies' paper based 3D printers, the Mcor IRIS and Mcor Matrix 300+ to our desktop 3D printer range.
Mcor Technologies is the manufacturer of the world’s most affordable, full-colour and eco-friendly 3D printers. They are the only 3D printers to use ordinary A4 paper as the build material, a choice that renders durable, stable and tactile models.
The Mcor IRIS 3D printer is the first true colour 3D printer, creating photorealistic objects, prototypes and models, using paper. The IRIS uses a CYMK print process with an International Colour Consortium (ICC) colour map, to apply 1 million+ colours at 5760 x 1440 x 508dpi, delivering accurate, consistent, rich photo-realistic colours to the printed part. The print process ensures that the Mcor 3D colour ink permeates the paper for the entire part, including undercuts and side walls, not just the upper surfaces. Furthermore, the printed parts can also be further finished to increase strength and durability.
Its capabilities make it an ideal 3D printer for architectural, GIS, print bureau and product design & manufacture applications. With low running costs, little post-processing and an eco-friendly approach through the use of paper and ink (fully recyclable), the Mcor IRIS is also an ideal application in education for Universities and Higher Education institutes wishing to offer its students an accessible means of 3D printing.
