The Mcor Iris HD adds better colour definition to its 3D printed parts


New tweaks to the Mcor Iris machine see it add high-definition colour and detailing to its colour 3D prints, as well as new cost savings to its paper-based process.

Built on new algorithms and with a newly designed carbide cutting tip, the Iris HD should offer better full-colour detail and text on 3D printed models - aiming to give a photorealistic appearance around the full geometry of the model.

The latest Mcor technology is said to use less ink, which when combined with the new longer-lasting cutting tip, is said to deliver a 20 per cent reduction in the cost to 3D print a model.
