Mcor Technologies Announces Mcor IRIS Color 3D Printer Enhancements

Mcor Technologies extended the possibilities of color 3D printing with enhancements to their Mcor IRIS 3D printer. The Mcor IRIS now offers increased color edge definition or sharpness, improved color quality on thin-walled models and a 10 percent reduction in ink usage, further reducing the industry's lowest operating costs.

The enhancements build on the superior True Colour capabilities of Mcor 3D printers and are part of Mcor's aggressive colour strategy. Earlier this year, the company made the Mcor IRIS the first 3D printer to include an International Color Consortium (ICC) profile. The profile ensures that the 3D printer will precisely produce industry-standard colours as presented in a photographer's, engineer's or designer's photograph, CAD model, scan or illustration. Without the ICC profile, 3D printers translate incoming colours to machine-specific ones, introducing unintended changes in the 3D printed colour along the way. Mcor 3D printers are the only ones to use ordinary A4 and letter paper, an ideal medium for colour, as the build material.

The Mcor IRIS prints in more than one million colours simultaneously, rendering colour as rich, vibrant and complex as it appears on a computer screen. Mcor's patented ink is specially formulated to penetrate paper, resulting in rich, consistent colour fidelity. When sheets of paper are bound together in the 3D printing process, the resulting model feels like wood because it essentially is wood.

"Our commitment is to exceed the expectations of people who experience our colour models and to make them see the real value in adding colour," said Dr. Conor MacCormack, co-founder and CEO of Mcor Technologies Ltd. "We'll continue to lead the industry, innovating and creating new possibilities for 3D printing in colour, which is a powerful and informative way to present 3D printed models to the world."

Mcor Technologies Ltd is an innovative manufacturer of the world's most affordable, full-colour and eco-friendly 3D printers. They are the only 3D printers to use ordinary business A4 and letter paper as the build material, a choice that renders durable, stable and tactile models. Established in 2004 with a talented team of specialists in the area of 3D printing, software and CAD/CAM, Mcor's vision is to make 3D printing more accessible to everyone. The company operates internationally from offices in Ireland, the UK and America.
