3D Platform Launches 3D Printing Roadshow

Written by

3D Platform (3DP) is taking its large format 3D printer, the 3DP Workbench on the road. 3D Platform is proud to announce the launch of the 3DP RoadShow across the entire USA, with events in dozens of locations over the next 6 months. The 3DP RoadShow will allow businesses interested in large format 3D printing to take a close look at the 3DP Workbench, interact with the 3D printing experts, and learn more about real-world applications of additive manufacturing. Anyone involved with manufacturing operations, from design engineers, shop floor managers to the front office are welcomed to register for a RoadShow event. The 3DP RoadShow will be organized in collaboration with 3DP’s resellers in the respective areas.

“We are taking the 3DP Workbench on the road " explained 3D Platform Vice President of Sales and Marketing, John Good. “When the 3DP RoadShow rolls into town, we bring live demonstrations of large-format 3D printing, expert tips and tricks, examples of what 3D printing can do for companies, and answers to your 3D printing question. And we can bring it all directly to a customer.” Lack of accessibility and high price points of advanced additive manufacturing technology have been major roadblocks for many business owners to adopt the technology. With the 3DP RoadShow, 3D Platform aims to overcome these barriers by bringing the 3DP affordable large format Workbench platform to customers’ doorsteps.

“By taking the 3DP Workbench on the road, we bring with it critical operational insight to businesses of all sizes,” said Jonathan Schroeder, 3D Platform president. “Additive manufacturing technology is being adopted rapidly. These local events will give attendees the opportunity to meet and network with other local business owners who are already far along the 3D printing learning curve, as well as those who are considering it.”

3D Platform (3DP) is raising the bar on additive manufacturing solutions, with the launch of the 3DP Workbench, its newest industrial-strength, large-format 3D printer.

“The 3DP Workbench is more than just another 3D printer, it has been designed through a professional user-experience process—with input from engineers, product developers and top creative talent around the world—incorporating tools they need to take our 3D platform to the next level. The result is a comprehensive toolkit that increases capacity, enables them to expand their capabilities and bring their ideas to life,” said John Good, Vice President of Sales & Marketing with 3DP.

The 3DP Workbench comes standard with the large build area of 1m x 1m x 0.5m, and is built on industrial strength mechatronics designed to deliver precision prints down to a 70-micron layer resolution. Additionally, the 3DP Workbench adds versatility with unique production and organizational features including:

  • SurePrint Servo Technology™ - Cut your print time in half with the SurePrint Servo Technology™ motors that have 85% greater torque, allowing for faster acceleration and deceleration and improving print accuracy and quality.
  • Folding Gantry – Even with its large build area, the 3DP Workbench is designed for maximum flexibility and accessibility. A unique two-part configuration will fit through a single width door, make it possible to locate conveniently it where you want – office, factory, etc.
  • Expanded Print Capabilities - The ergonomic height and open print bed enable full access to prints for advanced print techniques, such as core modeling and adding inserts of metal, electronics, and other materials.
  • Industrial Workbench – Solid hardwood work area, 12 industrial built-in storage drawers and cabinets for useful additive manufacturing tools and materials.


The 3DP Workbench will be releasing officially by the end of Q1, 2016. A live, on-going demonstrations of the 3DP Workbench will take place throughout the 28th Annual Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) Education & Training Conference, April 3 - 7, 2016 At St. Louis, Missouri.

3D Platform (3DP) is now offering a SurePrint™ Servo Motor Upgrade Package for the flagship printer, the 3DP1000. Both new and existing 3DP1000 users can enjoy the benefits of this upgrade package, which provides advanced mechatronics, motors, superior performance, and capabilities for print speed, accuracy, and reliability.

Key advantages of the SurePrint™ Servo Upgrade Package include:

  • Faster Speed – Cut your print time in half with the SurePrint™ Servo upgrade. SurePrint™ Servo motors generate 85% greater torque compared to traditional stepper motors, allowing faster acceleration and deceleration during printing.
  • Closed Loop System Delivers Superior Accuracy – The upgraded 3DP1000 operates in a “closed loop” system made possible by SurePrint™ Servo Technology. Each SurePrint™ Servo motor is embedded with a 20,000 count encoder, providing position feedback every 1.25 micron. This allows the system to adjust automatically the accuracy to increase print quality, resulting in a much smoother surface finish.
  • Reliable Performance – Traditional stepper motors consume a lot of power and generate a significant amount of heat, which degrades the motion system’s reliability and life expectancy. SurePrint™ Servo motors consume 67% less energy while generating 50% less heat, ensuring a prolonged system lifespan and improved motion system reliability.


“Available immediately, the SurePrint™ Servo Upgrade Package is an excellent option for both new and existing 3DP1000 users. The SurePrint™ Servo Upgrade Package is the equivalent to swapping your car’s 200 HP motor with a 375 HP motor—you immediately gain drive torque. Moreover, when you add smart traction control, you gain greater control and precision,” said John Good, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, 3D Platform. “The results for our customers include faster print times, greater positional accuracy and higher print quality.”

Following the successful entry into the 3D printing market with the industrial strength, large format 3D printer, the 3DP1000, 3D Platform continues to allow customers to leverage its industry-leading expertise in mechatronics and linear motion control technologies. The SurePrint™ Servo Upgrade Package can be installed on both new and all existing 3DP1000 machines.
