Meshmixer is the ultimate free 3D modeling tool that lets users mash, mix, sculpt, stamp or paint their own 3D designs. The introduction of direct 3D printing for Type A Machines' 2014 Series 1 3D Printer within Meshmixer makes it easier than ever to translate a 3D design into a physical object. The 2014 Series 1 3D Printer provides the highest return on investment and the longest lifespan of any 3D printer on the market due to its extensible design.

"This level of functionality is a first in our industry and makes the Series 1 3D Printer the obvious choice for professionals using Autodesk software," said Type A Machines CEO, Espen Sivertsen. "Teaming up with Autodesk brings the advantages of our extensible approach to both hardware and software to more professionals, makers and educators than ever."

Type A Machines is also releasing a new all-metal extruder with an industry-leading design, providing a significant leap in functionality. The highly durable extruder virtually eliminates clogs, allowing for temperatures far higher than any other extruder on the mass market. This means a wider range of polymers can be used with the Series 1 3D Printer than with competing printers.

The new extruder comes standard with all new 2014 Series 1 3D Printers. It will also be offered as an upgrade for existing owners of any Series 1 printer.

"Because of our upgradable platform, our customers get the newest technologies faster and aren't forced to buy a new printer," said Andrew Rutter, chief technology officer at Type A Machines. "Our new extruder is the first of a number of significant hardware upgrades we will release in 2014."

"Type A Machines makes an extensible, professional machine that creates prints up to one full cubic foot, which is ideal for users of Meshmixer software," said Christian Pramuk, product manager at Autodesk. "Integrating the direct print feature with the click of a button aligns with Autodesk's mission of unlocking creativity and helps provide users with a more simplified design-to-print workflow."
