Mumbai's MaherSoft Releases Its 1st Desktop 3D Printer: The Max

All around the world, new 3D printing products are constantly being created and innovated upon, and being one of the most populated countries on the planet, the hand that India has in the technological evolution of additive manufacturing is growing increasingly important. One of company helping to blaze the trail for 3D printing in India is the Mumbai-based MaherSoft, who have just announced their second 3D printer product ever, the Max. The news is coming after the company successfully launch of the Indie, an industrial-grade 3D printer they released earlier on in the year. The Max is MaherSoft’s first go around at the desktop format, and will be revealed for the first time at the 2015 3D Printing World Expo, which is taking place in the company’s home city of Mumbai on October 9 & 10.

The printer is PLA-compatible and is equipped with a detachable printbed to avoid difficulties while removing a 3D print.  With a clear orange casing that shows the complete inner workings of the Max’s 3D printing process, the desktop printer is sleekly minimalist, suggesting that it is both easy to use and easy on the eyes.  Here are some other technical specifications on the Max 3D Printer:

  • Nozzle: Single3dprinting_max3
  • Bed Size: 8″ x 8″ x 6” (203.2 x 203.2 x 152.4 mm)
  • Power Consumption: 150W

The Max is suggested to be an ideal desktop printer for students, hobbyists, and designers from all backgrounds, equipped with plug-and-play features that the company claims make it easy and reliable to make 3D prints at a pretty reasonable cost. All that is needed to print a 3D model on the Max is a USB or SD card, which you simply insert into the printer’s connectivity port and browse through on the LCD screen. The team has engineered the Max to be user repairable and modifiable, allowing owners to have compatibility with most general components available from 3D printing stores across the world.
