HP has released a new 3D printer that can print up to 10 times more filament and more than 300 times faster than its predecessor.
The printer, called HP PRISM, can print filament in either 3D or 2D at up to 1,000 per cent faster than before.
HP says the printer can print with a diameter of less than 1.5mm.
The printer has the ability to print filament at a speed of up to 500mm/s and prints with a nozzle diameter of 2.7mm.
The filament is produced in a custom chamber and is used for the printing of various objects, including a light-emitting diode, which is used to dim the light in a laser light source to produce light that is visible to the naked eye.
The HP PRISTION is the company’s latest printer offering for the consumer market.
The company says it is the world’s fastest 3D printing platform, capable of printing with a filament density of up 20,000 times higher than before, and a speed up of more than 100 times.
It is one of the first printers to feature the Canon 5D camera system, which the company says will allow the printer to scan objects and make 3D models in the camera’s 3D sensing hardware.HP says it has shipped more than 20 million printers, making it the world-leading manufacturer of consumer 3D printers, and it says it plans to build on this momentum by adding more printers in the coming years.
The company says the HP PRISMA can print in either 2D or 3D at 100 per cent higher speeds than before and can be used to produce a variety of materials and objects, such as glasses, clothes, and clothing accessories.HP said the printer is capable of producing up to 6mm (0.75in) filament per hour, or a filament volume of about 30 millilitres.
The filament can be deposited on a 3D printable surface and is then extruded by a heat exchanger.
HP said the heat exchangers also help to prevent the print from drying out or breaking.
The HP PRISE can print a variety the different materials on the printer, such a glasses and clothes, as well as 3D model files.
The first printing process, which uses the HP printer, takes about 10 minutes and is available on HP’s website.
It can print at up 50 per cent more filament than before but only with a temperature of 70°C (158°F).
