Solid Technologies, Inc at the Design 2 Part Show – Phoenixville, PA

Solid Tech's Booth @ Design 2 Part

The Design-2-Part Tradeshow this past week was a great success! Solid Technologies had the unique privilege of exhibiting some exciting cutting-edge technology from Zcorp, ANSYS SpaceClaim, and CGI! If you were not at the show, here is a little more information about what we do, and how we demonstrated our wide variety of products.

Solid Technologies, stationed at booth 433, displayed numerous full color models created by our on-site 3D Printer.  The eye-catching models garnered plenty interest in the 3D Printing process as our Zprinter450 from Zcorp was actively printing during the exhibition.  The awesome sales team representing Solid Technologies was asked various questions about printing speed, color, material, and cost. Quite a lot of engineers requested a quote for the printer, or printing services.

Solid Technologies sales representatives also answered many questions about Zcorp’s ZBuilder, as many of its yellow plastic models were also on display. There was much excitement as customers engaged in hands-on interaction with the plastic models. A few customers left the show with quotes for rapid prototyping hardware.

The ANSYS SpaceClaim demonstration, at the far front of the exhibit, was also quite a draw. Those who took part in the demonstration were intrigued by the look and intuitive nature of the software.  They were even able to try their hand at ANSYS SpaceClaim’s user-friendly Pull, Move, Fill, and Combine tools that enable hands-on 3D design.

To the far right of the exhibit, different scanning technologies were creating quite a buzz.  CGI’s Cross-sectional scanner, the Pearl-700, drew in many engineers looking for an innovative, thorough, and rapid analysis of part quality.  Zcorp’s ZScanner was also being demonstrated scanning an entire to-scale model of the body of a car.  Engineers were encouraged to engage in the demonstration and found it exhilarating!

Thanks to all who came out to Oaks, PA and stopped by our booth!

Z Corp. Introduces Two Value-Priced 3D Printers Starting at Just $14,900

New ZPrinter 150 is a ‘business-quality’ 3D printer at an industry-low price; and the new ZPrinter 250 is lowest-price ‘multicolor’ 3D printer


BURLINGTON, Mass., USA – Z Corporation today continued its quest to make 3D printing available to every designer, engineer, architect and student with the introduction of affordable, commercial-class 3D printers.

The ZPrinter® 150 (monochrome, $14,900) and ZPrinter® 250 (multicolor, $24,900) have a small physical  footprint ideal for the classroom, department, or small business. Unlike low-end 3D printers, the new ZPrinter 150 and ZPrinter 250: are easy to use out of the box; build 3D models with five times the resolution; and have the industry’s lowest operating cost (lowest cost per model).

In addition to being affordable to purchase and use, the new ZPrinters print five to 10 times faster than other 3D printing technologies, with the unique ability to print multiple, stacked models simultaneously. This dramatic throughput advantage enables ZPrinters to support entire classrooms or departments at their busiest times.

The ZPrinter 250 and other color ZPrinters are the only ones capable of simultaneously printing in multiple colors. Color 3D printing enables designers and students to better evaluate the look, feel and style of designs by enhancing 3D models with graphics, logos, text, labels, and design comments.

ZPrinter 150/250 specifications include:

  • Resolution: 300 x 450 dpi
  • Minimum Feature Size: 0.016 inches (0.4 mm)
  • Vertical Build Speed: 0.8 inch/hour (20 mm/hour)
  • Build Size: 9.3 x 7.3 x 5 inches (236 x 185 x 127 mm)

Both new ZPrinters incorporate automation features first offered in the midrange ZPrinter 450, including automatic setup, automatic powder loading, and self-monitoring of materials and print status. At home in any office or classroom, they are clean, quiet and free of any hazardous waste.

“The price of ZPrinting is coming down to enable broader adoption by mainstream users,” said Z Corporation CEO John Kawola. “We’re driving that revolution with new machines offering new levels of value. Though smaller in scale than the rest of our line, these ZPrinters deliver trademark Z Corp. speed, quality, and affordability.”

Pricing, Availability
The ZPrinter 150 and ZPrinter 250 are available now through Z Corporation’s worldwide reseller network. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price in the USA is $14,900 USD and $24,900 USD respectively, ex works (options, shipping, local taxes, and duties not included. International pricing will vary – please consult your local Z Corporation reseller.).
