Dearborn, Michigan — EnvisionTEC, a leading manufacturer of proprietary 3D rapid manufacturing solutions,  announced the launch of their new Perfactory® Micro Advantage  3D printer today at both the Atlanta Jewelry Show in Atlanta and the MJSA Show in New York. 

EnvisionTEC’s newest entry into their  Micro family of 3D printers, the Perfactory® Micro Advantage, provides an attractive entry-level solution for jewelry designers and retailers.  It boasts a large build envelope of 60 x 45 x 100 mm, while maintaining an  XY resolution of 50 microns and a Z resolution that is adjustable from 25 to 100 microns depending on the material used.   This size makes the Micro Advantage  an ideal companion to the original Micro for jewelry, allowing for wider design capabilities through the printing of larger pieces such as bangles and belt buckles.  Build speeds of up to 10 mm per hour for the full envelope are also possible depending on the material used.  The Micro family of 3D printers are also automatic and self-calibrating.
