Just two weeks after launching its SLCOM 1 for 3D printing woven fiber composite parts, EnvisionTEC has today unveiled another patented new breakthrough technology, cDLM or Continuous Digital Light Manufacturing, at the JCK Las Vegas tradeshow.

Called 'Micro Plus cDLM', it is the first 3D printer to print 3D models for direct investment casting for jewellery in minutes rather than hours. Demonstrations will be running throughout the event showcasing the Micro Plus cDLM, building casting-ready models in the industry standard 3D print casting material PIC 100 and also EnvisionTEC’s fastest material, QView.

“The addition of cDLM technology to EnvisionTEC’s Micro Plus 3D printer is a game changer for the jewellery industry,” said EnvisionTEC CEO Al Siblani, “Traditionally, 3D printing castable materials such as our PIC 100 would take hours to build. With cDLM, bridal and fashion rings can be designed, grown, and ready for investment casting the same day, which is a huge advantage for the jewellery market.”

The Micro Plus cDLM boasts average build speeds of 10-20 minutes per inch in Z for the full build envelope (45 x 28 x 75 mm), depending on the material used. The Micro Plus cDLM features the same industrial UV LED light engine found in the rest of EnvisionTEC’s Micro Plus machines and is an integrated PC with Wi-Fi, and a convenient built-in touchscreen.

“Providing real solutions to real application problems has become the hallmark of our research and development team’s efforts," Siblani added. "Adding the speed of cDLM to our professional grade jewelry 3D printing lineup will provide our customers with unprecedented manufacturing turnaround times.”

The Micro Plus cDLM will be available August 2016.
