BENEFITS OF VITAPRINT
Suitable for aseptic work in a laminar flow hood
While having a large printing volume of 200 x 300 x 50 mm (x,y,z), the Vitaprint is truly compact. The motorized piston drive does not require a dangerous, external high-pressure system. Instead the Vitaprint only needs a standard power outlet and USB/ethernet connection, making it ideal for work in laminar flow hoods.
Modular Tool Integration and Exchange
The open-source and modular platform allows simple integration and exchange of various tools, such as microscopes or lasers. In cooperation with international partners new tool integrations are being planned, such as multiphoton lithography and electrospinning.
Broad Range of Usable Materials
Integrated thermal control allows FDM printing in accordance to the specific melting point of polymers and hydrogels. In addition, the direct force translation from motor to piston allows a controlled extrusion, even with highly viscous materials, such as particulate pastes.
Advanced Printing Control
With the powerful and versatile PlanetCNC control software, g-code in a broad range of formats and from different slicing software, such as Cura or Slic3r, can be used easily. The newest version even allows integration of common programming commands, such as loops and condition statements.
