Amongst the 250+ exhibitors at this year’s TCT Show in Birmingham, I was given the opportunity to speak to Rize Inc. founder and CTO Eugene Giller. A previous employee of ZCorp – the full color, binder jetting 3D printing pioneer that is now 3D Systems – Giller officially founded Rize in 2014, after spending four years collecting the technology that would become the Rize One.
Material jetting plus FFF
With extensive knowledge and experience of the binder jetting process, Giller noticed an area for improvement in powder handling, he says “I was sick of coming home covered in powder.” In addition, he believed that post processing could be made a lot easier. By combining material jetting with common FFF, Giller and his team of engineers developed the Augmented Polymer Deposition (APD) process.
The technology behind “zero post processing”
Material jetting is the step that enables Rize One’s “zero post processing” motto where supports on 3D printed parts can simply be snapped off by hand. The technology also allows color gradients, with space for full color spectrum developments in the extra MYK units beside the print head.
