In October 2011 Dutch company Widenhorn expanded her actitities by becoming an official 3D printer reseller in the Netherlands.

BFB Touch 3D PrinterOne week after the announcement Widenhorn sold its first BFB Touch 3D Printer to Nedsystems in Rotterdam. Meanwhile Widenhorn has got another 4 potential customers.

Nedsystems Rotterdam produces and maintains turn-key network solutions for companies and was founded in 1983. The purchasing of the 3D printer is their first step to explore the 3D printing market and to support its operational relationships in the future.

The 3D Touch is a ready-to-use printer with the ability to use extra printheads to print complex prints with support of supporting material. The immediate availability, multi-material capabilities for easy support structure removal, 125µm layer thickness, 1mm minimum wall thickness and accurate and effective rapid prototyping make this particular model the best choice for NedSystems.

"The printer was well packed and could easily be started. Last week I tested the 3D printer to check the accuracy. I was positive by the test that Widenhorn had done, but after the tests I did, I became even more enthusiastic. The solid implementation and availability of open source software make the 3D Touch an affordable and versatile entry-level 3D printer for 3D modeling and Rapid Prototyping", concludes Steven Hoogslag.
