Engineers Get First Look at Airwolf 3D's High-Performance 3D Printer at ATX West

"Our high-performance AW3D HD is the fastest, most accurate 3D printer available for under $3,000"

ATX West 2014


ANAHEIM, Calif.--Engineers attending ATX West looking for a high-performance 3D printer for rapid prototyping within cutting-edge robotics, automation and assembly technologies will receive spectacular live demonstrations of Airwolf 3D's AW3D HD at Booth #3390 here this week.

ATX West is the largest design and manufacturing event on the West Coast where 50,000 engineering professionals can hear Airwolf 3D president and co-founder Erick Wolf speak on "Applications of Desktop 3D Printers for Rapid Prototyping" on Wednesday, February 12 at 11 a.m.

"Our high-performance AW3D HD is the fastest, most accurate 3D printer available for under $3,000," Wolf explained. "The AW3D HD is also easy to use. It features a class-leading build envelope of 1,150 cubic inches (12" x 8" x 12"), making it ideal for rapid prototyping. The printer offers layer-to-layer resolution as fine as 0.06mm, and a maximum print speed of 150mm/s with a positioning precision of 0.02mm. The 3D printer is fully autonomous, so no link-up to a computer is required."

Airwolf 3D is noteworthy in that it uses its own 3D printers to replicate themselves nearly 24/7 at the company's headquarters in Costa Mesa, Calif. This enables Airwolf 3D technicians to seamlessly evolve and improve the machines. The process also acts as quality control (QC) to ensure the 3D printers perform flawlessly over long periods of continuous use.

The AW3D HD 3D printer comes standard with Matter Control Pro host software and a six-month warranty. It's compatible with both Windows and Mac computers.

The patent-pending Airwolf JR (jam resistant) 3D printer hot end provides higher performance than standard nozzles as well as vastly increased serviceability. This drop-in replacement for Prusa-derived 3D printers is available with 0.50mm and optional 0.35mm orifice nozzles.

Purchasers eager to start building with their new 3D printer can download an STL file from several locations on the Internet, then slice and print. Unlike other printers that may only offer 8 different printing materials, the AW3D HD accepts 12 materials from multiple sources, making it remarkably cost efficient.

MSRP for the fully assembled and calibrated AW3D HD with Airwolf 3D's proprietary jam-resistant hot end is $2,995.

Additional models include the AW3D XL ($2,399 MSRP), AW3D V5 ($1,695 MSRP) and two 3D printer kits that come unassembled and presoldered: AW3D XL ($1,895 MSRP) and AW3D ($1,295 MSRP).

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
