Envision TEC’s  3D Bioplotter Technology

——————————————–
Envision TEC is a 3D printing company with wide range high speed production.  They works with jewelry, hearing aids, dental, consumer, auto manufacturing and design companies.  Envision submitted their first patent in 1999.  Process and Material Development Specialist for EnvisionTEC  Mr. Carlos Carvalho said “We’re excited about the new addition to the 3D-Bioplotter line-up, the enhanced user management flow and the new inner structure patterns,and for more than 15 years, our 3D-Bioplotter technology has been in the pre-clinical setting, yielding over 150 publications and gaining the trust of customers worldwide as an excellent research and production tool.” They are using this technology since 2000 for CT or MRI scans.  They use STL files to print 3d models.

Mr. Carvalho said “With the release of this software, the 3D-Bioplotter is no longer limited to printing straight, parallel strands; instead zig-zag, wave hexagon and space-filling pattern can be assigned to individual 3D shapes to create more complex and organic inner structures,” Mr. Carvalho also said “We developed the Starter Series to provide a new generation of Tissue Engineering researchers the same stellar performance both Manufacturer and Developer Series 3D-Bioplotter  with a maximum of 2 materials, or cell types, per object, our Starter Series is designed for customers with few requirements in parallel material processing and automation.”

Mr. Carvalho mentioned “This is one of our most exciting milestones within the 3D-Bioplotter technology and we’ll continue to expand our research developments to continuously assist educational institutions, researchers, scientist and medical practitioners with 3D printing advancements,”
