Laura explains the features of 3ntr’s line of industrial-grade 3D printing systems. She gives an overview of the large capacity A2 model as well as the compact A4 and the Material Management System (MMS). She also discusses the TRAK Tech Modules - a unique option that will get you started on the right track to printing successfully.
Smart Slicer Interface - SSI
SSI is software developed by 3ntr that is automatically updated so every user is always working with the most recent production parameters.
Easy to use and reliable in industrial applications
SSI is an intelligent control panel that makes the most of 3ntr printers — a single program to place, prepare and print.
Generous capacity for parts up to 23.6″ x 11.8″ x 19.6″
Individually controlled heating elements to achieve optimal accuracy and finish from the material you use
HEPA filtered air flow to limit contamination
Reusable bed for thousands of prints with minimal maintenance
Magnet set PEI Diamond Tray to keep the bed accurately mounted for every print
Prints up to three polymers at the same time
Two extruders for build material allows combinations of materials on a single build
One for support material
Liquid cooling at each extruder for precise temperature control
Integrated Camera & Web Monitoring
Through a print server the printers can be networked to manage them locally or remotely, making them compliant with the Industry 4.0 decree
Monitor the build process from another location
Make remote adjustments through the web interface
ABS & ASA
You will love the results you get when printing these standards of the industry. We offer formulations in different colors especially made for 3D printers.
Combine Materials for Lower Cost
The part shown here was made with a combination of two different build materials. For the internal shaft, IGUS Iglidur is used for self-lubricating and hardness. To minimize the part expense, the body is made of ASA.
Materials Development is the New Technology Frontier in 3D Printing
Many of the world’s top chemical engineers are racing to develop the thermoplastics of tomorrow. But many new, innovative materials already exist. With the Open Materials platform, you are free to explore and develop superior solutions.
Powerful, Flexible User Interface
KISSlicer is powerful software that prepares STL files for optimized printing. The user interface enables you to select preloaded settings or to adjust dozens of variables yourself.
Adaptive Layer Control — enables you to optimize layers
Preload — precise control of how the printer extrudes filament
Expert Mode — enables you to precisely set variables for your own unique configurations
Fractional Number of Loops — improves bonding between loops and infill
Lock Paths — lets you configure different styles for different parts on a single print
Wizards — guides the processes of setting up Profiles and Tuning the material flow
Protect your expensive spooled material in a UV-free, low humidity, temperature-controlled cabinet
Real-time monitor displays material usage and amount remaining
Holds up to six actively mounted spools
Feed into the printer, keeping the spool protected
Doubles as printer base
The MMS is optional equipment
Design For Additive (like never before)
Your imagination gets a boost from the multi-material capability of 3ntr printers. The part shown above is the result of combining formerly separate parts to achieve a single design, integrating a hose and filter housing.
With the 3ntr, you can have a different support material and build material. Choices include breakaway and soluble material that complement the build material. Your part finishes and delicate features will come out beautifully.
Large & Complex
The part above requires the precision of an Industrial Grade 3D Printer. Complex parts often use soluble support material to preserve the precision of the delicate features.
The controlled build chamber and powerful software enables you to make soft, flexible components.
3ntr is a 50 year old manufacturing business with deep roots in Oleggio, a traditional apparel manufacturing district outside of Milan, Italy. The inventor of the core technology, Davide Ardizzoia, draws on his long experience in engineering material flow through highly-automated equipment. Because of its innovative design the, 3ntr printer appeared on the cover of the Italian version of Wired Magazine shortly after being introduced to the European market. In five years of sales, the Model A2 and A4 have been embraced by industry leaders such as Airbus, Louis Vuitton, and Crocs.
