Direct3D Pellet Extruder showcased at Mecspe 2018, Parma, Italy.
Hundreds of professional visitors were amazed by this new technology and by the advantages it brings to the Additive Manufacturing world.
Some people are excited by the possibility to use materials not available in filament, like TPU with ShoreA <60, Automotive grades specified by OEMs, etc.
Other appreciate the cost saving opportunities and the possibility to use this technology for industrial production of small lots.
R&D centers see the advantages of testing new materials in a matter of hours, bypassing the filament step.
Designers are inspired by the transparency of PLA and the ability to play with colors.
Direct3D Pellet Extruder is the only small/mid size pellet extruder now commercially available in the market for 3D printing applications.
The first 10 extruders are available for immediate delivery.
