P3-d Expands High-Performance “Hercules” Product Line With Addition of Two New Nozzles

July 21, 2017 by Leah Evanovich
CLEVELAND – JULY 21, 2017 – Performance 3-d, a leading provider of high performance upgrade parts for 3D printers and rapid prototyping services, introduces the Airwolf AXIOM and Makergear V4 nozzles as part of its Hercules line. The addition of these products will allow P3-d to offer advanced printing capabilities to a wider variety of 3D printing enthusiasts.

Nozzles are a critical upgrade part for 3D printer consumers, as the standard brass nozzle equipped on most desktop 3D printers are easily eroded by modern filaments. Harsh materials wear down the nozzles, leading to inconsistencies, extruder jams, print failures, wasted time and often expensive material.

VIDEO: Voodoo Manufacturing’s First-Ever Robot-Operated 3D Printer Cluster

Our friends (and valuable customers!) at Voodoo Manufacturing have pioneered a breakthrough for the 3D printing industry: the world’s first robot-operated 3D printer cluster. The robot, deemed Project Skywalker, is launching Voodoo into the future by cutting costs and allowing operations to continue 24/7.

The robot arm functions as a “harvester”, removing plates from printers as necessary and replacing them with new, clean plates. These plates needed to be durable and high-performance – and that’s where we stepped in.

We’ve supplied them with more than 500 precision-cut glass build plates to help ensure their 160 busy printers are operating with cutting-edge efficiency.
