Print In Multiple Colors and Materials At The Same Time
With This 3D Printer by Ord Solutions
We are very impressed with the informative and convincing campaign by Ord Solutions. Ord Solutions has launched a Kickstarter campaign with the goal of improving their existing 3D Printer. This 3rd Generation (meaning 2nd update since first release), 3D Printer has the focus of being a 5 Nozzle, professional quality 3D Printer for under $3000 CAD/USD. Though generally pricier than many of the 3D Printers we list on our site we believe the capability given by the multiple Print Nozzles is worth the investment. Multiple Nozzles allow you to 3D Print in multiple colors at once and even multiple materials at once, giving you a wide
range of options as to what you can Print. Being able to Print in multiple materials at once also saves your from having to stop your Print job to change out your Filament to a different color/material so that you can build the next section of your multi-color/material object. This is especially useful if you plan on using your 3D Printer for artistic projects or plan on 3D Printing with more than just Plastic Filaments.
What we are most impressed by is the option provided by Ord Solutions for you to customize the Print Nozzles of your Printer. Up to all 5 of your Nozzles can be geared towards color Printing allowing you to Print in up to 5 different colors at once. Another option is to have a higher capacity Nozzle focused on filling in the center of your object faster, another Nozzle dedicated to the outer layers/support layers of your object, and the remainder to color, or any other combination you can think of. Ord Solutions will offer their 3rd Generation Printer with an all metal Extruder assembly; this would allow you to 3D Print at very high temperatures oppose to having to worry about the heat of your Extruder melting a plastic housing. This 3D Printer will be capable of Printing at temperatures in excess of 350°C/662°F, which would allow you to Print with any Filament made for 3D Printers today and for the foreseeable future.
Ord Solutions not only provides a high quality 3D Printer but they also provide software tailored to their Printer and instructions on operating your 3D Printer. This gives you a combination of a robust 3D Printer that is friendly to beginners and that saves time by allowing you to focus on your actual project rather than losing time just trying to operate your Printer. Replacement parts and technical support is also provided just in case you do run into any trouble. Ord Solutions appears to be a solid business, with a solid product and support to match. Apparently others believe the same as the Kickstarter campaign reached twice its funding goal while only half way through. If you don’t have the money on hand for this higher end, high quality 3D Printer, Ord Solutions has got that covered also; during the campaign you can pay $100 CAD/$96 USD and lock in the special Kickstarter campaign price all the way up to November 2014, effectively giving you over a year to do some saving! This option is NOT a fee, the $100 CAD/~USD will go towards the final purchase price of your Printer! This is the first time we have seen this on a campaign and we must say we really like that option.

Happy (and Colorful) Printing!
