Founded in 2004, Mcor Technologies is an innovative manufacturer of the only line of desktop paper 3D printers today. This week at Rapid 2015, the Irish company has released the latest 3D printer to their line-up: Mcor IRIS HD. According to the company, the Mcor IRIS HD provides 360° high-definition color, sharpens details, and reduces the industry's already lowest operating costs by 20 percent.

Mcor 3D printers create complex, durable physical 3D models from layers of paper printed with ink and bonded together. The models can be tapped, threaded, hinged, and made water resistant and flexible. Mcor's flagship 3D printer, the Mcor IRIS, prints any color any time (ACAT) for unmatched full photorealistic color capability and uniquely employs a global-standard ICC (International Color Consortium) color map to provide accurate WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) color 3D printing.

Built on new algorithms and a newly designed carbide cutting tip, Mcor IRIS HD makes full-color detail and text on 3D printed models crisper than ever to deliver a photorealistic appearance around the full geometry of the model and better communication of granular information.

Mcor's materials already cost 10-20 percent of other 3D printing technologies. Because Mcor IRIS HD uses less ink and the tip lasts longer, it delivers a 20-percent reduction in the cost to 3D print a model.

"Crisply defined color and rock-bottom operating costs are critical for manufacturers, schools, service bureaus, architectural firms and others who need to 3D print a high number of realistic models," said Dr. Conor MacCormack, co-founder and CEO of Mcor Technologies. "Our SDL (Selective Deposition Lamination) paper-based 3D printing technology has always offered the industry's highest-resolution color at the lowest operating costs. Now, with IRIS HD, we're providing even greater access to truly photorealistic color 3D printing."

Mcor will demonstrate Mcor IRIS HD this week at the RAPID conference (May 18 - 21) for 3D printing, scanning, and additive manufacturing at the Long Beach Convention Center in California.
