(DEARBORN, Mich.) – EnvisionTEC, a leading global manufacturer of professional grade 3D printing solutions, has announced the patented new breakthrough technology, cDLM™, Continuous Digital Light Manufacturing. Touted as the first 3D printer to print 3D models for direct investment casting for the jewelry industry in minutes rather than hours, the Micro Plus cDLM poses a significant speed advantage to the jewelry industry.
“The addition of cDLM technology to EnvisionTEC’s Micro Plus 3D printer is a game changer for the jewelry industry,” said EnvisionTEC CEO Al Siblani. “Traditionally, 3D printing castable materials such as our PIC 100 would take hours to build. With cDLM, bridal and fashion rings can be designed, grown, and ready for investment casting the same day, which is a huge advantage for the jewelry market.”
The Micro Plus cDLM has average build speeds of 10-20 minutes per inch in Z for the full build envelope, depending on the material used, and a build size of 45 x 28 x 75 mm. Like the rest of EnvisionTEC’s Micro Plus line, the Micro Plus cDLM will feature an industrial UV LED light engine, an integrated PC with Wi-Fi, and a convenient built-in touchscreen.
“EnvisionTEC has a long history of innovation, with a focus on 3D printing parts that are made to matter,” added Siblani. “Providing real solutions to real application problems has become the hallmark of our research and development team’s efforts. Adding the speed of cDLM to our professional grade jewelry 3D printing lineup will provide our customers with unprecedented manufacturing turnaround times.”
The Micro Plus cDLM became available in August.
