Navi Mumbai-based Divide By Zero Technologies launched Accucraft S150 3D printer on day one of Plastivision 2013 at Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai. It is first such device manufactured entirely in India.
Speaking to PrintWeek India, Swapnil Sansare, chief executive officer and founder of Divide By Zero, said, "The machine accepts design input from any CAD software in form of htl file format and uses ABS thermoplastic polymer wire to extrude plastic layers to form a 3D object."
The 3D printer can produce 3D objects of size up to 160x160x160mm. It can cater a range of applications in rapid prototyping for bottle industry, tool makers, mould making for candles, cup-cakes etc. "Though it is not viable for commercial production, it will help the product designers to realise the design concepts ," added Sansare.
With a background experience of handling CNC machines at his father's
sheet metal factory, Sansare developed the 3D printer which operates on the same principle of CNC machines.
"We have received a very good response at the show. The visitors have appreciated the product since it is entirely made in India and hence service support and spare parts is not an issue," said Sansare.
