Mcor Technologies Ltd, the Ireland-based manufacturer of photorealistic-color, paper-based 3D printers, expanded its global presence today by opening a U.S. headquarters at the Myles Standish Industrial Park in Taunton, Massachusetts.

This is the second U.S. office for the fast-growing maker of color-capable 3D printers, with the other office in San Jose, California. The new office's opening comes eight days before the company's 10-year anniversary.

Unique in the industry, Mcor 3D printers use 8.5-x-11 inch copy paper as the build material instead of expensive plastics or plaster. The company's flagship 3D printer, the Mcor IRIS, prints any color anytime, uniquely employing a global-standard ICC (International Color Consortium) color map to provide the industry's most accurate WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get), photorealistic color 3D printing.

"This U.S. headquarters will provide world-class consulting, service and support directly to our rapidly growing U.S. customer base," Dr. Conor MacCormack, co-founder and CEO of Mcor Technologies, said at today's grand opening. "Since our 3D printers are essential to manufacturing and education, we're especially delighted to be located in Taunton with its rich history in manufacturing and industry and its convenient location between Boston and Providence."

Also at today's grand opening, which featured demonstrations of Mcor 3D printing technology, were Jan O'Sullivan TD, Ireland's Minister for Education and Skills, who cut the ribbon and Taunton Mayor, Tom Hoye.

"I am delighted to be here today to open the US headquarters for Mcor Technologies," said Minister O'Sullivan.  "This truly innovative Irish company with its unique approach to affordable eco-friendly 3D printing will make 3D printers available in schools and colleges across the US.  The United States is the largest and most sophisticated market in the world for Educational Technology and delivering on the obvious potential of the Mcor product here will enable the creation of sales and marketing jobs in the US and high value R+D roles in Dunleer Co. Louth."

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.

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.

In a giant step toward the reality of 3D printing for all, Mcor Technologies Ltd has struck a deal with Staples Printing Systems Division to launch a new 3D printing service called “Staples Easy 3D,” online via the Staples Office Centre.

Staples’ Easy 3D will offer consumers, product designers, architects, healthcare professionals, educators, students and others low-cost, brilliantly coloured, photo-realistic 3D printed products from Staples stores. Customers will simply upload electronic files to the Staples Office Centre and pick up the models in their nearby Staples stores, or have them shipped to their address. Staples will produce the models with the Mcor IRIS, a 3D printer with the highest colour capability in the industry and lowest operating cost of any commercial-class 3D printer.

“Given our market leadership in commercial print, why would we ever stop at two dimensions?” said President Wouter Van Dijk, president of the Staples Printing Systems Division in Europe. “Customised parts, prototypes, art objects, architectural models, medical models and 3D maps are items customers need today, in a more affordable and more accessible manner. Mcor will help us to keep prices low, quality high and colour brilliant as we meet the demand.”

Although 3D printing is evolving on a similar path to 2D printing, there’s no sign that every home will have a 3D printer right away. “Until that time, consumers will look to service bureaus,” said Mcor Technologies co-founder and CEO Dr. Conor MacCormack. “Staples is uniquely positioned to become the pre-eminent service bureau to the world, and we will help them deliver highest quality and value. Staples Easy 3D is a breakthrough service in innovation and access for consumers and businesses alike.”

The online platform for Staples Easy 3D will initially be made available in the Netherlands and Belgium in Q1 2013 and will be rolled out quickly to other countries, according to Oscar Pakasi, director business development of Staples Printing Systems, who is responsible for developing the concept and the design of the Staples Easy 3D print service platform.

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-letter paper as the build material, a choice that renders durable, stable and tactile models.

Mcor Technologies Ltd today announced the availability of a new 3D printer with the most powerful colour capability ever. Named after the goddess of the rainbow, the Mcor IRIS prints in more than one million hues simultaneously as it creates photo-realistic physical objects from 3D data.

High-fidelity colour is critical for many organizations in manufacturing, education, architecture, military and health care that need product prototypes, architectural studies, three-dimensional maps and medical models to improve sales, marketing, communication, treatment and logistics.

While most “colour” 3D printers print only a handful of colours – one at a time in solid patches – the IRIS delivers True Colour, printing different hues simultaneously from a palette more than twice the size of its nearest competitor, including pure black.

Mcor takes its unique colour capability a major step further by rendering colour as rich, vibrant and complex as it appears on a computer screen. That’s because the build material is paper, the original and natural medium for coloured ink. The plaster employed by other 3D printers turns ink to mud, significantly altering intended hues.

“With the IRIS, what you see on your screen is what you get in your hand, and that’s limited only by your imagination,” said Mcor co-founder and CEO Dr. Conor MacCormack. “Ink was intended for paper, which is the ideal canvas for bright, high-resolution colour.”

Other factors in IRIS colour quality include Mcor’s patented 3D colour ink, which permeates the entire part, not just the surface. Printabilty on all surfaces, including undercuts and side walls. Consistent colour from part to part.

“The Mcor IRIS is just the 3D printer we’ve been waiting for,” said Allan Valentin Hansen, managing director of Mcor reseller Saitu Graphic Equipments Co.,Ltd. “Our customers want to cost-effectively produce high-quality, durable 3D prototypes with the most realistic colours. These are precisely the capabilities Mcor has delivered with the IRIS and I’m certain we will see a huge demand for this new printer.”

“In Education, the availability of a 3D printer opens up a new world of possibilities, imagination, creativity and innovation,” said Fred Hampton, co-owner of Mcor distribution partner Southern Educational Systems (SES). “The addition of colour to the process exponentially multiplies and enhances the educational experience. Let’s open wide the iris of the mind’s eye and experience the colours. Thank you Mcor.”

IRIS specifications include:

Build size:
A4 Paper: 256 x 169 x 150mm
Letter Paper: 9.39 x 6.89 x 5.9 inches

Layer Thickness:
0.1mm (0.004 in)

The Mcor IRIS and its monochrome sibling, the Mcor Matrix 300+, are the world’s only 3D printers that create models from paper (standard Letter/A4 sheets), whether fresh or used. Models can be disposed of in the recycling bin for cradle-to-grave sustainability. When pages are cut and bound together, the model is tough, durable and stable – no infiltration is required.

Mcor 3D printers employ water-based adhesive – no toxic fumes, lasers, airborne powder or toxic resins – enabling the machine to easily co-exist in an office or classroom. Part cost is 5 percent of other technologies’ costs, and total cost of Mcor IRIS ownership over five years is one-fifth that of the competition.

The Mcor IRIS can be ordered today through Mcor’s worldwide reseller network for December delivery at €11,300 (£10,200 or $15,866 USD), the manufacturer’s suggested retail price per year for the three-year Free D plan. The unique Free D plan includes machine use, free materials and service, and reflects Mcor’s commitment to unfettered innovation – encouraging access to and use of powerful 3D printing technology. Instead of discouraging use through expensive consumables, the company rewards use with a flat price.

Mcor Technologies Ltd, the manufacturer of the only paper 3D printer in the world today took a giant leap forward into full 3D color with the announcement of the Mcor Iris full 3D color printer, which will deliver highest quality color with the finest resolution.

The Mcor Iris joins Mcor’s family of paper 3D printers and the vision of producing high quality, low cost and eco-friendly 3D printing solutions. The Matrix is the only 3D printer in the world that can use Letter paper to make 3D objects – the low cost, eco-way. And the ‘Matrix’ is already in use printing extraordinary things with clients such as the Royal College of Art, Florida State University and KCI Medical.

Now Mcor is taking their technology to the next level with a full color 3D printer using regular letter paper.  The Mcor Iris is named after the ‘Goddess of the Rainbow’, “We see color as an essential offering to our customers – we think in color so our 3D parts should be in color”, said Mcor co-founder and CEO Dr Conor MacCormack.

MacCormack adds, “The Mcor Iris produces sharp vibrant prints; printing on to a pure white media produces better color authenticity and reproduction when compared with other color 3D technologies.” The Iris prints photo-realistic 3D parts with the resolution you would expect from a high quality 2D color printer.

The Iris will also be as easy to use as the Matrix. “We believe that the key to reaching a broader market is about making the equipment as easy to use as a 2D printer”, says Dr Conor MacCormack, “Everyone talks about making 3D printing as easy as ‘printing on paper’ but Mcor is actually making this a reality and now with the Iris it is a full 3D color reality”, said Dr MacCormack.

The parts out of the Iris are robust and have a very smooth surface finish and are ready to handle even without any post-processing; “So with the Iris you get color and strength”, adds MacCormack.

The Iris will open up a world of opportunity to engineering, education, AEC, GIS and entertainment. “Now full color 3D printing will be accessible to everyone with full 3D color needs”, said Dr MacCormack.

Mcor’s goal is to continue to provide accessible 3D printing solutions with many other products to roll out in the near future, “The mantra within Mcor is unfettered innovation, and the Matrix and Iris are just the first in a series of exciting developments for the company moving forward”, said Dr MacCormack.

Mcor’s Chairman, and former Co Founder and CEO, Macrovision, John Ryan believes, “Mcor Technologies' new Iris printer takes 3D printing to a whole new level.  It is the only printer that can make 3D objects in full high-resolution color, offering the same extensive color palette found in top-of-the-line 2D printers.  That, combined with its use of off-the-shelf computer paper as the primary source material, makes the Iris printer the perfect choice for applications where life-like full-color prints, low material cost and clean eco-friendly operation are required.  I have no doubt that the unmatched abilities of Mcor's Iris printers will spawn many new applications for 3D printing and will initiate the migration of 3D printing from the business environment to the home”.

The Mcor Iris will be available later this year with pricing to be released at a later date.
