DuPont, German RepRap and 3DChimera Join Forces at RAPID+TCT 2019

Miami, FL May 20, 2019 -- At this year’s RAPID+TCT event DuPont, German RepRap, and 3DChimera are joining forces in the DuPont booth (#552).

DuPont will showcase their high-performance 3D printing materials, printing live on a German RepRap x500 by the 3DChimera technical team on the RAPID+TCT expo floor.  Due to the semi-crystalline nature of these materials, printed parts exhibit incredible mechanical properties in a format that is reliable and easy to 3D print. These materials allow for greater manufacturing agility and enable new opportunities to scale and accelerate production while reducing costs. 

This is the first year that 3DChimera, a US-based additive manufacturing consultancy and product reseller, will co-exhibit with DuPont at the RAPID+TCT event. 

Alex Hussain, CEO at 3DChimera says “We are honored to showcase the capabilities of the new DuPont High-Performance materials on the German RepRap x500, which is the most popular and capable 3D printer in our product offering.” 

3DChimera connects the dots between producers of materials, 3D printer manufacturers, and real-world customer applications to effectively deliver solutions that take advantage of additive manufacturing.  With the release of DuPont’s new semi-crystalline materials, 3DChimera has been optimizing print parameters on the German RepRap x500 machines with very exciting results. The 3DChimera team will have examples of functional 3D printed parts on showcase in the booth (#552).

The German RepRap x500 is a robust 3D printer for industrial use with high temperature materials. The x500 comes with a large heated building chamber of 500 x 400 x 450 mm (X/Y/Z) and a series of innovative features that focus on the demands of industrial applications. A solid metal frame allows for extremely stable and precise operations. The new water-cooled high temperature hot*end combined with the German RepRap “open material platform” philosophy make the x500 the best choice for new material developments.

RAPID+TCT 2019 will be held at the Cobo Center in Detroit, Michigan, from May 21-23.  Representatives from DuPont and 3DChimera will be available for the duration of the conference to answer questions about how these products can elevate your current and future manufacturing needs.
