3D printing firm Cosine Additive unveiled its brand new website yesterday, which features a straightforward machine pricing structure. Customers interested in purchasing one of the company’s AM1 3D printers, or those with some leftover Cyber Monday-shopping urges to fulfill, can now tinker with their order, as Cosine is offering a range of temperature packages, multiple extruders, yearly service, and a special unlimited material program to suit a range of particular 3D printer needs.

The flexible range of packages offered by the company reflects its overall business philosophy. "We believe strongly in open materials, open software and open technology,” explained CEO and co-founder Jason Miller. “Our pricing should be open and transparent as well,” he added. Prices for the AM1 3D printer start at $72,000.

Cosine’s AM1 3D printer was first unveiled at the RAPID 2015, North America’s largest additive manufacturing conference, in May, where the company’s technology gained invaluable exposure. The 3D printer boasts a huge 1.2 cubic yard heated build volume, and is fully enclosed, unlike many printers of a comparable size. The gargantuan AM1 3D printer, which also features a near limitless polymer and composite materials platform, can print around 10 pounds of material per day. Cosine are one of a small number of 3D printing firms pushing ahead with carbon fibre 3D printing on a smaller building platform.

The company is confident that customers will see value in that seemingly steep price tag, and points to some of the 3D printer’s unique selling points as justification. ”The key to printing large is mitigating warping,” explained John O'Connell, VP of Sales. “The heated enclosure makes all the difference. Until today, no one has made an enclosed printer at this scale.”

The Cosine team also believe that the high level of compatibility offered by the AM1 3D printer will be seen as a refreshing change by the 3D printing community. “Cosine Additive's goal is to bring about fundamental change in the additive manufacturing industry,” said Andrew McCalip, Chief Technology Officer. “If the technology is to continue its exponential growth, there must be a decoupling of hardware, software, and materials companies. We offer an open and modular hardware platform of the highest quality. Our technology is enhanced by major industrial players who come to us with software and materials solutions.”

Techmer and Universal Fiber are some of the 3D printing companies with whom Cosine have collaborated, with several further partnerships set be announced in 2016. "We're just getting started," warned McCalip. "We can't wait to show you what we're working on next!"
