Today (June 21), M3D, the leading consumer 3D printer manufacturer, announced the launch of the M3D Pro at CE Week 2016 in New York City. Designed to bridge the gap between consumer and commercial use, the larger, quicker, and more advanced M3D Pro delivers a reliable 3D printing experience derived from a number of innovations leading to new features. The Pro will tout the same ease-of-use and accessibility that has become synonymous with the M3D brand. Professional printers are often priced for more than $1000 while the Pro will be available for an entry-level price of $500 at pre-order.
The M3D Pro was designed in direct response to customer feedback. The new printer is outfitted with a heated bed option, outer dimensions of 10.5” cubed, and a larger build volume, allowing objects as tall as 7.8” to be printed—in turn making the Pro the most space-efficient printer ever to hit the market. Every hardware component within M3D’s newest model was built to optimize efficiency and accuracy while maintaining its inherent accessibility and affordability, simplifying the process of taking a 3D file to a 3D print for consumers and professionals alike.
The M3D Pro is the first 3D printer driven by two ARM-core processors and a network of more than two dozen sensors. By rapidly pooling and fusing data, the M3D Pro maximizes the performance of the printer while also improving the overall printing experience through better consistency and reliability. This monitoring includes multiple measurements of speed, filament usage, temperature, and power levels. A standout feature of this sensory data allows the M3D Pro to recover from power outages by saving information as power levels drop off.
“The M3D Pro represents a new benchmark in product development in our industry,” said Michael Armani, Co-Founder & CEO. “We’ve designed the Pro to have all of the capabilities of a commercial printer at a cost consumers want. It’s the natural next step for the industry, transcending the limitations of casual use and allowing users to create more practical, everyday objects—whether it’s a customized print to add that finishing touch to a cosplay outfit, printing out a difficult-to-source part for a budding DIY project, or everyday household goods.”
The M3D Pro will be available for pre-order by August 2016. The M3D Pro will be available for demonstrations at CE Week, booth #128. To learn more and sign up to be notified upon its release, please visit www.m3dpro.com.
