The machine’s updated features are said to make SLS 3D printing faster and easier, with Wematter reinforcing its goal of enabling desktop 3D printing. As the company brought its flagship product to market, Wematter made several updates to its Gravity platform, including a new release in 2020, and also sought to provide post-processing and materials options. extended.
Gravity 2022 Mk II has been fitted with an improved water cooling system, which is now more granular to cool “exactly when it needs cooling”, and a new protective window which eliminates some cleaning steps tedious between prints. A build preview capability is meant to make it easier and faster to place available parts into the machine’s build volume, while all support integration tickets are now handled through the company’s Deep Space software. Other updates include a detail preservation algorithm that automates settings that only experienced SLS users could have tapped into, improved thermal design capabilities in Deep Space, and a service panel that allows service technicians to monitor and control everything in Gravity remotely. The Gravity Mk II can now also print 18 versions of 6 different materials.
“An important part of my vision for Gravity was to create an SLS 3D printer that was as natural to use in the office as your paper printer is,” commented Wematter Founder and CEO Robert Kniola. “With these new improvements, I think we’re more or less there.”
Wematter will exhibit on Booth F50 at TCT 3Sixty between June 8e-June 9e.
