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.

Why settle for ordinary when you can have EXTRAORDINARY large format 3D prints?

Introducing the 3DP1000™ from 3DP Unlimited™, a giant step forward for fused filament 3D printing

  • BIG - With 74x greater build area* than the average ordinary desktop 3D printer, the 3DP1000 will take your prints from ordinary to extraordinary.
  • Economical - with base platforms starting at $15,999, 3DP is lowering the cost barrier for entry into large format 3D printing.
  • Accurate - for precise prints, the 3DP1000 can print down to 70 micron layer resolutions.
  • Robust - the 3DP1000 is based on industrial strength linear motion and mechatronics that provide consistent quality performance.

The 3DP1000 is the ideal solution for a wide range of applications in industrial design, rapid prototyping, product development, automotive design, building & naval architecture, custom props, sculptures, stage sets, artistic development, and much, much more.

*The 74x bigger build area is based on a comparison with an average desktop type printer. For example the MakerBot® Replicator® 2 shows a build area of 410 cubic inches (11.2”L x 6.0”W x 6.1”H). By comparison, the 3DP1000 maximum build area is 30,510 cubic inches (39.37” L x 39.37”W x 19.68”H).

3DP Unlimited is a division of PBC Linear and is a company of skilled mechatronics engineers who embrace rapid advances in technology to innovate, design, and build next generation equipment for rapid prototyping. Having personal experience with inconsistent results produced by traditional 3D printer designs, 3DP Unlimited is committed to building on industrial strength linear motion components, actuators, and motors while maintaining affordable flexibility with open source software and control solutions.
