Mcor announced the Mcor FLEX on Wednesday at RAPID, Cobo Center, in Detroit, Michigan. Users of Mcor's IRIS and Matrix lines of 3D printers will have an option to produce pliable 3D printed models that are water resistant, low cost and durable.

On Tuesday Mcor announced its Mcor IRIS true-colour 3D printer is the first 3D printer to include an International Color Consortium (ICC) profile, which ensures that the 3D printer will precisely produce industry-standard colours as presented in a photographer's, engineer's or designer's photograph, CAD model, scan or illustration.

"At Mcor, we continue to innovate in order to provide a wider audience with more options for accessible, safe, professional-class 3D printing technology," said Dr. Conor MacCormack, co-founder and CEO of Mcor Technologies Ltd.

Mcor 3D printers produce physical, 3D objects from ordinary 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.

Because the paper is 70 per cent porous, it acts like a scaffold for the infiltrant, enabling it to take on the properties of that infiltrant material. With Mcor's specially formulated water-based PVA coating, 3D printed models produced on Mcor IRIS and Matrix 3D printers can be quickly and easily treated to achieve flexible properties.

"Mcor FLEX is ideally suited for use in a variety of 3D printing applications where flexible material properties are important, including packaging, product design, education, fine arts and digital arts, among others." said Dr. MacCormack.
