Irish start-up Mcor Technologies Ltd, the manufacturer of the only paper 3D printer in the world announced the Mcor Iris full 3D color printer at Rapid 2012.
The new machine is based on the Matrix system that loads the first sheet and uses a roller cutter to slice in the form of the first layer. Then a layer of adhesive is applied and the next layer is added and the process continues.
The new Mcor Iris full color 3D printer will uses same kind of letter paper but it will make full-colour 3D objects. It could print photo-realistic 3D parts with high quality color and the finest resolution you would expect from a high quality 2D color printer, according to the company.
"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." said Dr. Conor MacCormack, co-founder and CEO of Mcor Technologies.
The company claims parts out of the Iris are robust and have a very smooth surface finish without any post-processing required. The Mcor Iris will be available later this year with pricing to be released at a later date.
Mcor has a special pricing strategy that instead of buying the machine and consumables, the user gets a free machine including maintenance and unlimited prints for a three year plan starting at £7,500 per year. If this pricing structure is added on the Iris full color 3D printer then the way that the company has structured its new product is pretty compelling.
