Z Corporation to Showcase Advanced 3D Printing, Prototyping and Scanning Technologies at RAPID 2011

Attendees Will Experience Full Spectrum of Innovative Solutions for Concept Models, Functional Prototypes and Reverse Engineering in Booth 404

BURLINGTON, Mass., May 17, 2011 — (PRNewswire) — Z Corporation will demonstrate a wide range of 3D printing and 3D laser scanning technologies at this year's RAPID 2011 Conference & Exposition, showcasing the tools that manufacturers, architects, educators and other innovators are increasingly employing to introduce higher-quality designs and products.

The annual RAPID Conference and Tradeshow is North America's definitive additive manufacturing event. RAPID 2011 takes place May 23 - May 26 at the Hyatt Regency in Minneapolis, Minn.

From ZPrinters that pump out multicolor concept models, to ZBuilder Ultra rapid prototyping machines that affordably create plastic prototypes of injection-molded quality, to 3D laser scanners that capture surface data for reverse engineering and inspection, Z Corporation technology supports the entire product development spectrum from inspiration through quality control.

Located in booth #404, Z Corporation will offer live, interactive demonstrations of products such as:

  • ZScanner® portable 3D scanners, including the ZScanner 700, ZScanner 700 CX and the ZScanner 800, using Geomagic and Rapidform software for specific applications. ZScanners are the first handheld, self-positioning scanners that can digitize 3D surfaces in real time.

  • The ZPrinter® 450, a full-color, easy to use, office-friendly 3D printer delivering advanced color, automation and a print speed five to 10 times faster than any other technology.

  • The ZBuilder™ Ultra rapid prototyping machine, which builds durable plastic parts rivaling injection-molding's accuracy, material properties, detail and surface finish. ZBuilders cost one-third of the price of machines with comparable performance.

To experience the beauty, quality and functionality of Z Corporation parts, attendees will be able to examine conceptual, presentation and functional prototypes created with ZPrinters and ZBuilders, including a large-scale ZPrinted model rocket.

Z Corporation, whose technology is also a favorite of architects who need to quickly and cost-effectively create building models, will offer a special workshop at the show primarily for architects and others in the industry. The 3D Printing for AEC Workshop takes place on Thursday, May 26th at 9 a.m. during the Architecture Breakout session. It features Z Corporation customer Charles Overy, president of the LGM architectural visualization firm, and Olimpio Demarco, Z Corporation's director of business development. This session is an AIA approved course and earns 1.5 CEU credits for attending members.

Z Corporation will also participate in the annual RAPID Puzzle Challenge, hand out samples of multicolor 3D printed models, and hold a drawing for a Flip camcorder. Z Corporation senior executives will be on hand to listen to attendees' product development priorities and discuss which rapid prototyping and 3D scanning technologies can best meet their needs.
