Purple Platypus, a distributor of 3D printing systems, is offering the BFB 3000 Panther, a fully-assembled, color 3D printer.
Manufactured by Bits from Bytes Ltd. of North Somerset, UK, the BFB 3000 Panther prints models and parts from computer-aided design (CAD) files. The printer uses an SD card, and requires no computer connection.
“The BFB 3000 Panther is the first and only commercially-available 3D printer of its kind,” says David Cox, president of Purple Platypus. “Budget-conscious businesses and consumers will finally be able to design and manufacture new products in-house without breaking their budget.”
Purple Platypus will hold two open house events for prospective customers and the media at its facility. The open house events will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on May 25 and May 27 at 151 E. Columbine Avenue in Santa Ana, CA.
