3 HTi teams up with Stratasys to bring Professional Grade Desktop 3D Printers to their customers and manufacturing businesses of all sizes.
June 12, 2014 (Newswire) - 3 HTi is excited to announce a new partnership with Stratasys in representing the Idea Series line of 3D printers.
The Idea Series printers are a line of professional desktop 3D printers that utilize Stratasys' patented fused deposition modeling process. This starts with proprietary Stratasys software, mathematically slicing and orienting an STL file for the build process. ABS plastic is liquefied and deposited layer-by-layer following a tool path defined by the CAD file. Support structures are automatically generated as the materials are deposited in extremely thin layers and the part is built from the bottom, up. The Stratasys FDM process allows multiple colors to be used in one part and yields durable models, which can be tested for form fit and function.
Since 3D printing's inception, system reliability and model quality have increased, resulting in diverse applications. At the same time, prices have decreased so that some systems are affordable for small businesses.
"As a trusted resource, this adds to the breadth of capabilities that 3 HTi provides to its customers in Discrete Manufacturing," said Garry Hoffman, 3 HTi's VP of Sales. Hoffman continued, "Stratasys is the main leader in this industry and they show no signs of slowing down. We have had an impressive response from our customer base and are excited about putting rapid prototyping capabilities right on their desktops
