Mimaki’s New End-To-End High-Quality 3D Printing Solution to Launch At Formnext 2021

The leading manufacturer of inkjet printers and cutting systems, Mimaki Europe, has announced that its new technologies will be launched at Formnext 2021 on 16 November, offering a complete 3D printing solution to streamline and optimise 3D model production with increased automation. These new technologies aim further to accelerate the adoption of high-quality, full-colour 3D printing.

The new end-to-end solution features the 3D Print prep Pro cloud-based software service, compatible with all Mimaki 3DUJ-series printers. Designed to simplify the 3D printing process, the new platform helps users prepare and finalise their 3D files before printing. In addition, this subscription-based software autocorrects file errors. It optimises 3D data used in 3D printer modelling, ensuring that the final 3D printed objects look the same as those visualised on the screen.

Using the 3DUJ-2207, you can then speed up and automate the post-print workflow with the new 3DCS-322 – an intelligent support materials removal unit developed in collaboration with AM Solutions – 3D post-processing technology.

“With this complete solution for the Mimaki 3DUJ-2207, professionals and prosumers in any discipline can reinvent the way they work by adding scalable, full-colour 3D print production,” explains Arjen Evertse, General Manager Sales EMEA, Mimaki. “This suite of 3D technology is one of the most affordable high-quality, full-colour 3D solutions available and opens the door to anyone who previously felt the benefits of 3D printing were out of reach, such as creatives, designers using prototypes, scale model makers, entrepreneurs and medical research or educational bodies. The entire package will be exhibited at Formnext, and we can’t wait to see the market’s reaction to this breakthrough inaccessible, full-colour 3D printing.”

With many professionals turning to 3D printing to accurately produce models, the need for a fast, user-friendly 3D data correction software has never been greater. This was recognised, so Mimaki created the 3D Print prep Pro platform to ensure users that its 3D printing technology could easily and effectively correct data errors and optimise the shape of the model, carefully balancing image quality and processing speed.

The software detects and automatically amends any errors in size, thickness, VRM data, gap and hole filling, hollow shapes, cut transparent parts and material colour. In addition, users can specify conditions for automatic correction according to the type of 3D model being produced by simply selecting the ‘character,’ ‘mechanical,’ or ‘vehicle’ correction mode. This functionality makes the overall process quicker and easier to configure a 3D print file, bringing the wide-ranging benefits of full-colour 3D printing to more companies and individuals, even if they have had limited experience with 3D printing technology.

To enhance the 3DUJ-2207 user experience is the addition of a new 3DCS-322 automated post-processing unit. In addition, Mimaki has partnered with market-leading 3D printing, and additive manufacturing equipment solutions provider AM Solutions – 3D post-processing technology (a brand of the Rösler Group) and has introduced an Industry 4.0-ready, highly efficient support material removal system. The software-driven technology offers users a consistent, repeatable process at a higher speed than traditional methods, without compromising even the most delicate, detailed geometries or the colour nuance of the 3D parts.

“Bringing together AM Solutions’ specialism and Mimaki’s expertise has produced a truly innovative, safe and simple post-processing solution with an attractive price-performance ratio,” says Arjen Evertse. “By presenting this new system alongside our new software service and latest printing technology, we aim to provide Formnext visitors with an experience that will make this eagerly-anticipated event worth the wait.”
