Vancouver based 3D printing company Tinkerine will soon launch its Ditto Pro printer, aimed at the education market.

The Ditto Pro features a sleek Open C frame crafted out of uni-piece aluminum composite shell. It boosts a 225 x 165 x 205 cm (8.9 x 6.5 x 8.1 in) build volume and 50-300 microns resolution.

The Ditto Pro can print one color at a time and works with PLA filament. It also sports quick-swap extruder nozzle with auto temperature adjustment for consistent printing and minimal downtime. The removable glass build platform is designed for better adhesion. The quick release system allows you to access and remove printed object easily.

The printer also comes with an on-board graphic display for instant printer control and status feedback.

The education market is a target market for the Ditto Pro 3D printers, and selling into the education market can help to drive future sales when today's students find jobs at corporations and are used to working with 3D printers. Tinkerine believes that a 3D printer can be used in arts, engineering and science classes.

Ditto Pro 3D Printer ships with an estimated lead time of 2-4 weeks. The price (~$1,900) and pre-order will be announced soon.

Update: May.1, 2014

Tinkerine Studios today announced the launch of DittoPro 3D printer. DittoPro is priced at $1,999 CAD ($1,899 USD) fully assembled and is expected to ship at the end of the month.

Previous models of Tinkerine 3D printers -- the Ditto+ and Litto -- were developed for the hobbyist, but DittoPro is designed for the prosumer and education markets. The consumer market is the fastest growing segment of 3D printing today, and is expected to grow 80% per annum to 1,000,000 units in 2018 according to Juniper Research 2014.

A Zeepro Zim clone? Eh, that's funny. Tinkerine has been selling (working!) printers for quite a while. The Ditto Pro is an aluminum framed version of their Ditto+ printer. Has Zeepro even shown a real working printer yet? Sheesh..

yes. but 3d rendering works always very fine.. no hot end problems , no need filament, it gets out by itself , in colors.. everything is solo nice and easy in rendering :)

Build Volume: 225 x 165 x 205 cm Typo?

the flashforge X is $1200, metal framed, heated bed and has dual extrusion. how is this $1900 for a single extruder?

Zeepro Zim clone without the dual extrusion mode. If they're going to launch a product with a render, they could at least make the rendering accurate and detailed. I hope that's not the actual CAD blueprint as a 3D model...

It's nice that they're going to launch a rendering. I hear renderings are hard to mass produce.

So nothing new and innovative?
