Our patented Augmented Deposition is an inclusive, multi-material 3D printing technology. Augmented Deposition combines two discrete technologies, extrusion and material jetting to simultaneously extrude engineering-grade thermoplastic and jet selective additives at each voxel (3D pixel) wherever they are needed to change the characteristic of the material.
Augmented Deposition enables us to bind thermoplastic filament with functional inks. For easy support removal, this is RELEASE ONE. For detailed text and images, this is Marking Ink that is jetted anywhere and anytime it’s called for in the file to print directly onto parts.
Intelligent products increasingly require parts with variable materials, which include mechanical, electrical and chemical properties. Augmented Deposition fuses them into unified parts, enabling innovators to deliver unprecedented customer experiences.
