Nano Dimension Partners with Zuken to Evolve Dragonfly PCB 3D Printer
Electronics 3D printer manufacturer Nano Dimension is now working together with the expert PCB designers at Zuken to advance the 3D printing user experience and prototype turnaround times. Nano Dimension will take advantage of the support for implementing electronic technologies provided by Zuken’s market-leading, native 3D, system-level design solution, CR-8000 Design Force, to further evolve its Dragonfly PCB 3D printer.
It has been an amazing few years for our company as we’ve fielded interest in our technology. We’re excited about working with Zuken to harness Design Force and take our products even further, giving our users a seamless experience from design to output and optimization.” Simon Fried, Chief Business Officer of Nano Dimension.
Design Force is the sole design tool that allows specification of unique rules for materials, meaning no extra steps are needed when 3D printing to silver and any other future conductive material. Zuken also offers dedicated DFM solutions to support printed electronics via its DFM Inkjet module that optimizes CAD data for inkjet printers. With these solutions from Nano Dimension and Zuken, users can expect to spend more time innovating and getting new ideas to market, rather than dealing with design administration.
“Zuken’s CR-8000 Design Force retains all the detailed data needed for 3D printing and allows export direct to manufacturing or 3D printing, without losing integrity. Nano Dimension’s 3D printers are typical of the many applications we envisioned when we pioneered native 3D design for manufacturing.” Humair Mandavia, Chief Strategy Officer of Zuken USA.
Nano Dimension, founded in 2012, focuses on development of advanced 3D printed electronics systems and advanced additive manufacturing. Nano Dimension’s unique products combine three advanced technologies: 3D inkjet, 3D software, and nanomaterials.
