Bangalore: DesignTech Systems, a CAD/CAM/CAE and PLM solutions provider in India and a distributor of Stratasys that provides design building services, 3D printing and 3D production systems, has launched uPrint - a personal 3D printer which is available at a reasonable price of $14,900.

Statasys of the U.S. sells the printers in the sub-$15,000 price bracket. Vikas Khanvelkar, Managing Director, DesignTech Systems said, "uPrint breaks the $15,000 barrier with a fully functional, desktop-sized 3D printer. With its small foot print and low cost, it will find place practically in every design group." Using Dimension's proven FDM technology, uPrint prints models with Stratasys ABS plus, a material on average 40 percent stronger than the company's previous ABS material, making it suited for testing the form, fit and function of models and prototypes.

Pradeep Nair, Stratasys Regional Director ASEAN and India said, "uPrint features automated support removal system, allowing for hands-free removal of the support saving labour and enhancing the ease of use of material."

"uPrint will appeal to designers, engineers, architects, artists, teachers and others working in CAD," said Woody Frost, Vice President - International Sales, Stratasys. According to the company, there would be no waiting in queue for a shared printer and no waiting for models to arrive from an outside service.
