NOT ONLY 3D PRINTING, BUT ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING TOO
Visitors will have a large choice of different technologies, not only simple 3D PRINTERS, but also very professional tools like the Solidscape® Drop-on-Demand (“DoD”) thermoplastic ink-jetting technology for complex wax patterns for investment casting of finished parts which is used for jewelry and foundries applications. 3D Scanning devices are demonstrated with different levels of precision. A silicone vacuum casting machine is present for demo. Different specific CAD softwares will be available including the 3D Doctor software, a real 3D imaging tool for data coming from MRI in Dicom format or the new 3S software for lattice structures generation. Multistation being the agent for France of SLM SOLUTIONS or ARCAM, metal additive manufacturing will be present.
The division MULTISTATION SECOND LIFE , specialized in recent second hand rapid prototyping machines, will propose its last opportunities, for instance , on site an available 2007 EDEN 260V or a nice ZCORP Z510 at very reasonable prices
After deep benchmarking, you can rent or buy your own 3D printer, 3D scanning device or vacuum casting machine and receive an efficient training from the technicians of the PROTOSHOP supported by the hot line of Multistation.
"We focus mainly on selling machines" says Clément BOUTET , the manager of the store. "Such 3D printers will cost from 1000 euros and we receive the visit of our customers coming from academic world, from the design or industrial design bureaus.
