LOVELAND -- Aleph Objects, manufacturer of LulzBot 3D printers, is getting help from Tennessee-based Eastman Chemical Company and its Eastman Amphora 3D polymer in developing even stronger printed parts.
Eastman’s 3D polymer is also helping St. Louis-based 3D printing filament provider taulman 3D, whose upcoming material – n-vent – can be used with desktop printers including Aleph’s LulzBot Mini for at-home printing or LulzBot TAZ for professional use.
“Collaborations like the one between taulman 3D and Aleph Objects are why Eastman is involved in the 3D printing market,” said Alex Dudal, Eastman Chemical Company market development rep.
“These two companies are key leaders in this market from a hardware and filament perspective, and collaborating with them allows us to bring Eastman Amphora 3D polymer to a broader audience in the right way.”
“At Aleph Objects, our mission is to respect user freedom and offer versatile, cutting-edge technology that allows our community to bring their ideas to life,” said Jeff Moe, Aleph president.
“Based on our in-house testing using LulzBot 3D printers, we are confident that n-vent by taulman 3D, made with Eastman Amphora 3D polymer, will rank among the best premium materials on the market.”
Aleph is showcasing its products at the RAPID industry show in Long Beach, Cal. May 18-21.
