Origin to Unveil “Origin One” at RAPID; New Manufacturing-Grade 3D Printing System Enables Additive Mass Production

Leading
footwear manufacturer ECCO is using Origin One’s programmable
photopolymerization process and Open Material Network to cut production
costs and get to market faster

DETROIT, May 20, 2019
/PRNewswire/ — Origin, the developer of a new open platform for
additive mass production, is debuting Origin One, the company’s new
manufacturing-grade 3D printer. Origin One’s technology is based on
programmable photopolymerization (P3) and enables manufacturers to
reduce production time and product development costs while delivering
consistent, accurate parts with commercial-grade materials.

Origin
came out of stealth mode late last year and has pioneered a new
approach, Open Additive Manufacturing, that combines modular hardware,
open materials, and fast post-processing with its unique print
technology to enable mass production.

Origin One uses P3 to
precisely control light, heat, and forces among other variables to
produce parts with exceptional accuracy and consistency. A responsive
print process monitors polymerization data and automatically optimizes
process conditions for the best possible results. The optimized build
volume (192x108x350mm), compact footprint, and fast post-processing
enables manufacturers to maximize production capacity per sq ft. One
operator can manage a large fleet to produce thousands of parts a day
without the need for external automation.  Learn more on Origin’s
website.

ECCO partners with Origin

Origin’s open
additive platform attracted ECCO, and the two companies have launched a
partnership to develop a new approach to manufacturing footwear. ECCO is
using Origin’s printing platform with BASF’s materials at their R &
D department at the company’s headquarters in Denmark. “We expect
Origin’s open additive approach will enable us to reduce development
time, lower costs, and accelerate our time-to-market,” said Jakob Møller
Hansen, Vice President Research & Development, ECCO.

This one single desktop device can 3D Print, laser engrave, and CNC machine.

Practically
every prototyping tool you’d ever need exists within the realm of the
Snapmaker 2.0. In its second, more expansive, open, and fine-tuned
iteration, the guys at Snapmaker have put together an absolute
prototyping powerhouse that literally takes up not more than a square
that measures 3×3 feet. The modular device can be built to run as a 3D
Printer, a Laser Engraver/Cutter, and even a 3 or even 4 Axis CNC
Machine. The Snapmaker 2.0 isn’t a product as much as it’s an
eco-system… a set of opportunities. An ability to practically fabricate
anything you want!

At the heart of the Snapmaker is its complete
metal construction and modular nature. Metal allows you to have
near-perfect tolerances, it can take heat, and it’s the choice for any
product that’s as heavy duty as a fabricating system. Snapmaker’s metal
construction ensures its ability to perform to precision, while its
modular nature gives it the ability to do any sort of fabrication you’d
need. Designed to be faster, smarter, and even larger, the Snapmaker 2.0
can handle bigger projects than its previous iteration, and can deliver
quality faster. Snapmaker 2.0’s modular build allows you to put
together the product you need. Within a couple of minutes, you can
assemble a fully-functional 3D printer that can also do laser engraving
or CNC carving, just by interchanging heads and adding extra elements
like a spool (for the 3D printing filament), or a vice (for CNC
machining).

Snapmaker’s software guides you through the whole
(incredibly simple) process. It provides a host of features that make it
easy for a consumer (with relatively no skill or understanding of
software) to operate it. The touchscreen interface on the Snapmaker 2.0
can alert you when the filament runs out during 3D printing (and even
pause the build till you change it), while CNC carving, Snapmaker 2.0
allows any consumer to easily switch between drill bits (a task that
earlier required a CNC expert), and the laser engraving module comes
with a camera built into it that captures your product and lets you
preview what your laser art would look like on the product, right in
Snapmaker’s interface. The entire device even comes with an auto-resume
feature that allows you to continue working from where you left off if
there’s ever a power cut. Snapmaker can automatically recognize which
tool head (3D printing, laser, or CNC) that is attaching to the machine
and shows the relevant control panel on the touchscreen. The workflow
and UI is simple and intuitive.

This ability to use pro-tools with
just simple know-how makes the Snapmaker 2.0 an absolute game changer,
giving you the power to fabricate prototypes, and even make your own
products, toys, and craft materials in your own home. Perfect for
freelance industrial designers, engineers, artists, craftspeople, and
even in office setups like studios, teams, or start-ups, the Snapmaker
2.0 is a pretty powerful tool to put your ideas to the test. Its modular
setup lets you build exactly the fabricating tool you need, allowing
you to expand it, add an enclosure, or even modules like an IP Camera or
an emergency kill-switch. Designed to empower you to build your ideas,
the Snapmaker 2.0 brings seriously capable and powerful professional
tools to anyone with a creative inkling. Go ahead! You can literally
build your own production line in your home!

innovatively adopt the CAN (Controlled Area Network) bus expansion
solution which was widely used in car automation. Rather than adding
more ports and make a bigger control board with tangled cables, we’ve
upgraded our controller to expand your creativity by providing universal
ports, multiport adapters, and a CAN Hub for adding additional CAN-bus
ports.Future Expansion

The Snapmaker 2.0 is modular. It
allows for one machine to fulfil many roles which reduces space and
cost. Snapmaker A150, A250 and A350 can be transformed into even more
powerful machines with the upcoming Snapmaker Rotary Module, High Power

All
the Snapmaker models are built to last. For Snapmaker 2.0, we pushed
the boundaries of all-metal construction even further. All modules and
major components are made of high strength metal. For example, both the
controller board and power adapter use aluminum alloys housings for
better heat dissipation; the original POM rollers are upgraded to steel
rollers to deliver a higher load-bearing capacity and rigidity.Well-made

The
aerospace-grade aluminum alloys are made into precision, reliable parts
of Snapmaker modules after a series of processing steps. Each
manufacturing process is strictly controlled, and every part is
meticulously made. Snapmaker 2.0 not only looks premium, but also

automatically detect power-loss, and then resumes exactly where it left
off. You can recover any project and get perfect
printing/engraving/cutting/carving results all the time.Easy to Assemble

3D Printing Highlights – Auto Leveling

Bed
leveling is a tricky process, especially for a large heated bed and
inexperienced users. To make bed leveling easier, we added an
auto-leveling function. An induction sensor can probe the bed in a grid
and apply mesh-based compensation that ensures you print on a level bed
every time, all without the user having to go through complicated
process.Filament Runout Recovery

Equipped with a filament
runout sensor, those who are looking to print a large object can now
print without fear. This will prevent unfinished prints and “air
printing”. Once it realizes that the filament has run out, the
touchscreen will notify you to load a new filament and allow you to
resume printing immediately.Upgraded Cooling System

With
Snapmaker 2.0, you can print objects with deep overhangs and get a more
smooth finished surface! Cooling is just as important as heating when it
comes to FDM 3D printing. For the Snapmaker 2.0, the cooling system is
re-designed to cool the print in the most efficient way.Flexible Platform

Removing
a print is now easier than ever. Just lift the plate and flex it, no
matter the size or shape of your print. As the heated bed uses a
magnetic design, you can easily remove and put back the print sheet, or
change it with the laser cutting work table or CNC carving in one
minute.Laser Highlights – Built-in Camera

The built-in
camera allows you to preview your design with whatever material you use.
You can edit your design and precisely position it exactly where you
want it to be. What you see is what you get!Draw, Cut and Capture

Laser
cutting can be as easy as drawing. The Snapmaker 2.0 can recognize and
transform your drawing into a vector image for laser engraving or
cutting. Furthermore, you can edit the converted vector image directly
in the Snapmaker software to fit into all your creative projects!Faster Engraving

Faster
is better. We added the Line (Normal Quality) mode to provide you a
fast engraving option for grayscale images. This feature can save you
hours when engraving big grayscale images. The quality is still very
good compared to the original Dot (High Quality) mode.Aluminum Grid Table

The
Aluminum Grid Table is specially designed to prevent damage to the bed
by defocusing the laser beam during cutting. It is removable and super
firm.CNC Highlights – ER11 COLLET

Snapmaker 2.0 features a
fully upgraded CNC module. Using the standard ER11 Collet, it guarantees
a better concentricity that allows for faster CNC carving speed and
larger step down, which saves your time significantly. It also supports
over one hundred carving and cutting bits. The diameters of the bits
range from 0.5mm (0.020 inches) to 6.35mm (0.250 inches).Wasteboard and Clamping Kits

Each
Snapmaker 2.0 comes with an MDF wasteboard. It’s removable and it can
protect the bed from damage as well as providing a smooth and leveled
surface for precise CNC carving. Furthermore, you can use the provided
aluminum clamping kits to hold down the materials more easily and more
reliably.Dust Resistance

Snapmaker 2.0’s linear module has
been upgraded for easy maintenance. The leadscrew, driver chip and
precision parts are completely enclosed in the aluminum alloys housings.
It eliminates the problem of dirt accumulation, resulting in better
durability.
