Announcing the Discov3ry 2.0 - Two-Part Extrusion and Mixing Meets 3D Printing

Announcing the Discov3ry 2.0 - Two-Part Extrusion and Mixing Meets 3D Printing

Discov3ry2

In 2014, the Discov3ry paste extruder was successfully launched to bring paste 3D printing to a wider audience. Thousands of people worldwide are now using the Discov3ry to work with an expanded range of 3D printing materials. Additionally, Structur3d Printing has furthered its research of materials and methods for 3D printing with soft materials. As sales in the research market grew, we realized the need to provide a fully integrated printer system. The Discov3ry Complete became this flagship platform thanks to a partnership with Ultimaker.

By listening carefully to customer feedback over the past couple of years, we realized the next opportunity – the Discov3ry 2.0.

The Discov3ry 2.0 brings together 2-part materials with the simplicity of using the original Discov3ry for 3D printing. It is also is made for more industrial applications. As with the original Discov3ry, we will be offering the Discov3ry 2.0 Complete: the Ultimaker printer pre-integrated with the Discov3ry 2.0.

Discov3ry 2.0 Complete

“The Discov3ry 2.0 was a natural evolution of our technology. Customer feedback was very important to make sure we built something people wanted. The original Discov3ry opened 3D printing to thousands of materials. The Discov3ry 2.0 raises the material possibilities to tens of thousands,” says Charles Mire, CEO and Cofounder, Structur3D.

3D Printing or Additive Manufacturing?

3D Printing or Additive Manufacturing?

Despite the fact that the terms are often used interchangeably, these two production fields have significant differences in history, application and technology. Let us take a moment to clear them up.

History

The history of 3D printing (3DP) began at the beginning of this century with the first commercially available 3D printers. These systems are consumer products which can be used as a desktop application in private homes. The price-performance ratio has significantly improved in recent years and the number of different models on the market has increased exponentially.  The cost for a single unit is between a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. Makerbot, Lulzbot, Ultimaker, and Printrbot are some of the popular brands in the consumer space today.

Adventures in Paste Extrusion: Printing Playdough at Maker Club

Playing around with molten plastic isn't a particularly popular past time for children. Play dough on the other hand, is something almost every child experiences in their early maker projects.  

So, if you want to introduce kids to 3D printing, it makes sense to do it with materials that they already know and love. 

Last week we were invited to take part in the monthly meeting of the Kitchener-Waterloo MakerClub, a group of kids (and their adults) who get together once a month to explore the joys of making.

We decided to try out printing with play dough for the first time, and we made this video of it.
