Mcor Technologies Announces Flexible Finishing Option For Paper-Based 3D printers

Mcor Technologies Ltd, manufacturer of the only line of desktop paper-based 3D printers has announced a new flexible finishing option, Mcor FLEX. Mcor FLEX provides users of Mcor’s IRIS and Matrix lines of 3D printers with the option to produce pliable 3D printed models that are water resistant, while remaining true to Mcor’s ethos of providing 3D printing technology that is low cost, accessible and durable.

Mcor 3D printers produce physical, 3D objects from ordinary letter and A4 paper. When sheets of paper are cut and bonded together, the resulting model is tough and durable enough to be tapped, threaded and hinged. Models are safe and eco-friendly and can be disposed of in the recycling bin for cradle-to-grave sustainability.

Because the paper is 70% porous, it acts like a scaffold for the infiltrant, enabling it to take on the properties of that infiltrant material. Flexible 3D printed model properties are achieved with Mcor FLEX by quickly and easily treating 3D printed models produced on Mcor IRIS and Matrix 3D printers with Mcor’s specially formulated water-based PVA coating.

“At Mcor, we continue to innovate in order to provide a wider audience with more options for accessible, safe, professional-class 3D printing technology,” said Dr. Conor MacCormack, co-founder and CEO of Mcor Technologies Ltd. “Mcor FLEX is ideally suited for use in a variety of 3D printing applications where flexible material properties are important, including packaging, product design, education, fine arts and digital arts, among others.”

Mcor FLEX is immediately available through Mcor’s network of Authorised Dealers.
