Not sure why CES was chosen to launch something that is meant for labratories, the 3D printer is aimed for scientific research that requires nano-scale precision. The new line of 3D printers have 250x the resolution of most other 3D printers. Old World Labs is releasing MC-1 and MC-2 in the new line of printers that look like something out of an alien spaceship. MC-1 allows high-precision nano-scale photo fabrication intended for medical, engineering, scientific and defense laboratories. MC-2 although not already ready, features advanced control boards and can handle fabrication using multiple materials with its upgraded lasers. MC-2 will be available in the middle of 2015.
Helping Laboratories Move On
With 3D printing technologies getting outdated before they reach laboratory benches, Old World Labs is providing a contracted service plan to upgrade to new 3D printing instruments. Customers already using these printers include Stanford University, NASA, University of Virginia, Virginia Tech and Old Dominion University.
