Zhuhai CTC To Unveil New 3D Printer

/ 9 years ago


3D printing is promising to be the future tech of choice, the notion of printing a vast array of objects in your own living room appeals to a wide range of people and also sectors.

A company by the name of Zhuhai CTC Electronics who are notable 3D printer manufacturer based in China have confirmed that they will be unveiling a new “affordable” desktop 3D printing machine at the International Software Convergence & Innovation Expo, which is being held within a coastal city by the name of Qingdao eastern China in early July. According to reports, this will be the first high-resolution 3D printer which will be affordable for the average consumer. How affordable? Well the price with which this machine is being marketed at is around $1480 dollars, this is around £943.07, and of course this is assuming the price does not jump when it reaches the shores of the EU.

In order to achieve high user growth, the electronics firm has adopted the minimum layer detail thickness of 0.1mm which veers away from the common 0.025mm of similar 3D printers. This is not as detailed as the latter’s measurements, but this is what keeps this machine cheaper than its competitors.

As you can see below, this 3D printer is portable and will not take up much space, the specs which have been released for this potential machine is as follows.

Will it take off? This depends if consumers will adopt this new form of printing while having the ability to market a product at the price indicated when we are still very much in the midst of a flat lining economy. It’s a step forward for this new tech innovation, but adoption will need to be realistic until the price matches the budgets and expectations of a wider section of society
