Hall of Fame for Mcor Models
The RapidPro tradeshow is now in its 8th year at the NH Conference Center Koningshof in Veldhovenis, the Netherlands. It is very much an international trade fair with solutions for all phases of prototyping, (low volume) production and product development.
This year our dealer, Aga Color, will exhibit on booth #123 so you can see the Mcor ARKe on display printing in full colour. Not only that you will also see our new feature, AWR (Automatic Waste Removal) in action – this prints full colour 3D models in half the time!
This year the show will also host a ‘hall of fame’ contest – the hall of fame models will be on display at the show. Mcor Hall of Fame models will consist of a variety of models from the Artist Keith Brown.
Keith was one of the earliest adopters of SDL (Selective Deposition Lamination) paper-based 3D printing technology. He used the Mcor Matrix monochrome (one colour) 3D printer to create elegant and organic sculptures, experimenting with a variety of forms, textures and finishes, including ordinary boot polish, to achieve his vision.
However, Keith is driven by the possibilities of true, full-colour 3D printing, so Keith set about pushing the boundaries of his previous work to incorporate colour into his 3D printed sculpture using the Mcor IRIS. But more recently he has printed pieces on the Mcor ARKe which really exemplifies the full colour aspect of his work with over 2 million colours.
You will see his work on display at Rapidpro in a special ‘Hall of Fame’ booth so watch out if you are attending!
Great to see Mcor models achieving Hall of Fame recognition and thanks in this case to Keith Brown for producing such wonderful models!
