The Dimension 3D Printing Group, a business unit of Stratasys, Inc., launched the uPrint Personal 3D Printer at the annual Dimension reseller conference in Anaheim, Calif., in January.

uPrint is available for purchase immediately through authorized resellers and joins Dimension’s market-leading line of 3D Printers. Designed for the desktop, uPrint requires only a 25 x 26 in. footprint and features an 8 x 6 x 6 in. build envelope. Using Dimension’s proven FDM technology, uPrint builds models with Stratasys ABSplus — a material on average 40
percent stronger than the company’s standard ABS material, making it ideally suited for testing the form, fit and function of models and prototypes. uPrint also features a soluble support removal system, allowing for hands-free removal of the model support material.

As a personal 3D printer, uPrint makes 3D printing immediate and convenient through every design iteration. There’s no waiting in queue for a shared printer and no waiting for models to arrive from an outside service.

“uPrint is an important advance for Dimension’s product line, providing users with a networked, desktop-sized  3D printer capable of building durable, accurate models ready for testing,” said Jon Cobb, vice president and general manager of 3D printing for Stratasys. “uPrint will appeal to designers, engineers, architects, artists, teachers and others working in CAD. With uPrint, they can get an affordable, high-quality 3D modeling system that’s available today.”
