Create it REAL, a Danish 3D printing startup announces today the first 3D printing real time processor. The company is a high technology company based in Aalborg Denmark and part of Aalborg University business incubator program.
According to Create it Real, this 3D printing real time processor - 3D RTP v450 - can reach up to 450mm/sec which is almost three times faster than typical desktop 3D printers on the market today. The 3D RTP chip (installed on a standard dim socket), or the full motherboard including all the controllers for the different printer parts, would "help 3D printer manufacturers to solve the speed issue without changing current designs and mechanics," says Create it REAL.
The chips are initially targeting Fused Filament Fabrication printers, but are also ready to support SLA technology (Stereolithography) and will support SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) in a near future.
Create it REAL also offers an optional intuitive software to print 3D files, optimized to take advantage of all the features included in the 3DRTP chip. Create It Real 3D printing technology is being developed around mixed expertise in electronics, 3D graphics and mechanics. In June 2013, Create it REAL created a proof-of-concept add-on that recognizes digital gun part models and prevents them from being printed.
"Our objective is to support all the 3D printer players, from small start-ups up to large OEMs, and to offer them easy to integrate, state-of-the-art technologies so they can spend their time and resources on their most important assets: their customers." says Jeremie Pierre Gay, Create it REAL's CEO.
Key Features Summary
- Boost 3D printers speed up to 450mm/sec
- 3 different versions to address the different market needs from desktop to high-end
- Improved print quality thanks to smoother X,Y,Z (simultaneous control)
- Integrated temperature control for optimum filament extrusion
- Supports 3 motors, up to 2 extruders, 1 heated bed, 2 fans and 6 limit switches (start/end positions)
- Create it REAL's Motherboard also includes an innovative semi-automatic calibration mode to quickly set up the printer
The development kit will be available by end of January 2014.

"Boost 3D printers speed up to 450mm/sec" Why the main feature is announced in same way as the magic phone stickers for "increase network". Currently even Arduino with grbl can drive printer in this speed but hardware limit is around 200mm/s and this is due of motors and printer construction limitation not lack of this magic processor.

I don't see it. Your web site is sparse, your PR is not backed by any substance. Your alleged 3D printer design is a rendering. If there's actual technology being developed in your organization, your web site doesn't give me any confidence in reflecting any such reality. For all we know, the entire organization could be one person making a sparse web site.

I don't see the necessity for a big cover up. Whether it is an FPGA or a microprocessor that has enough power to harbor RT OS or whether it is communicating and executing instructions to an RT OS it's not big news. I bet they are using RT linux or open source core which is why they don't want to release it to the public until it is all masked by a different GUI.

Dear all, We understand your questions regarding such news, but we believe our technology will boost the 3D printing market to the next level. We will answer all technical questions to companies that are interested in working with us to integrate our chips into their printers. We will also publish more details very soon, and we have no doubt you will be impressed by the videos we will put on our web site. Best Regards The Create it REAL team

there is very little information on about what they exactly do and what it does, no concrete info. not sure whether this is real and they are trying to patent it in someway before releasing it, or they are just trying to be funny...

Their web site is so void of substance that I wouldn't even bother talking to them. These are also the jokers that claimed to have software that blocks prints of gun parts. I don't know I'd they actually have software, they don't even show screen shots of software. Their 3D printer design is a rendering. I suggest ignoring future PR from them.

What a load of marketing fluff! So these guys re-badged a FPGA and call it a processor?
