Mcor Technologies announced a new flexible finishing option, Mcor FLEX, at the RAPID conference in Detroit. Mcor FLEX provides users of Mcor’s IRIS and Matrix lines of 3D printers with the option to produce pliable 3D paper-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.
