Sculptify Introduces 3D Printer That Uses Pelletized Materials

Sculptify today introduced David, an innovative 3D Printer that works directly with pelletized materials.

The release of David brings a new printing method to the personal 3D printing world.  The printer utilizes Sculptify-developed FLEX technology, which allows users to create objects from a wide range of pelletized materials — each with their own unique properties.

“David is an incredibly versatile device, that can be used by both consumers and prosumers alike,” said Slade Simpson, Sculptify Co-Founder and CEO. “Sculptify believes that for 3D printing to reach its fullest potential, printers need to be able to serve hundreds of different purposes. We think that FLEX technology is the next logical step in making this possible.”

David features both groundbreaking technology and commercial-grade components, all specifically designed to provide versatility, speed, and accuracy.  A removable print platform and easy loading system makes David as easy to use as it is powerful.

“We came up with the name David after being inspired by the famous sculpture created by Michelangelo.  It’s one of the most recognized works of art in the world, and reminds us that with the right tools, anything is possible,” said Slade Simpson, CEO of Sculptify, “We have poured our hearts and souls into this printer for the past year and a half, and we are really excited to get it into people’s hands.”

Fused Layer Extrusion (FLEX) technology, is a printing method only found in Sculptify products, which utilizes pelletized materials rather than plastic filament.

“We think that FLEX printing is going to open the door to hundreds of new applications in both the consumer and commercial sectors because of the unique, and growing material library — we are venturing into a new realm of 3D printing,” said Todd Linthicum, President and Co-Founder.

Mass produced consumer products often begin in the form of pelletized materials.  They are traditionally the least processed and lowest cost form of materials available.

“David provides customers with the freedom to choose from an extensive selection of materials — which range from hard and durable to soft and flexible. By eliminating the dependence on filament, Sculptify can offer exotic materials and composites never before used in 3D printing,” said Luke Daniel, Director of Business Development.

Sculptify plans to go live on Kickstarter soon. The company will offer production units to Kickstarter backers in exchange for funding contributions.
