After last week being unveiled during the Formnext industry tradeshow in Frankfurt, Kodak and Smart International have announced the availability of the new Kodak Portrait 3D printer. The Raspberry Pi powered 3D printer offers a billed volume of 200 x 200 x 235 mm and creates objects using Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) technology thanks to its Dual extrusion with automatic nozzle lifting system.
Supported 3D printing filaments include Kodak, ABS, Flex 98, HIPS, Nylon 6, Nylon 12, PETG, PLA+, PLA Tough, PVA and third-party. The 3D printer supports MacOS, Windows, Linux and come supplied with Kodak 3D Cloud software and Kodak 3D slicer as well as supporting 3DS, 3MF, AMF, OBJ, and STL file extensions. Kodak explains a little more.
“The dual extrusion system features automatic nozzle lifting and swappable PTFE and all-metal hotends for optimal material compatibility. Featuring an intuitive touchscreen, automatic leveling and calibration, and preset print parameters for every material, the KODAK Portrait 3D Printer is ready to use straight from the box for those already familiar with the technology or newcomers with creative needs.”
“With free access to the KODAK 3D Cloud, an IT-compliant printer management software created by 3DprinterOS, it is now possible to manage a print farm for any number of machines, in any number of locations, from anywhere in the world. Users can access via Wi-Fi or LAN port and slice online, monitor their prints and receive over-the-air updates.”
