COlOR 3D PRintinG
Z Corporation, producers of the world’s fastest, easiest to use and most affordable
3D color printers, makes color 3D printing accessible to everyone. Z Corporation printers
produce handheld color models quickly, easily and inexpensively from computer-aided
design (CAD) and other digital data. From educational settings to the most demanding
commercial environments, Z Corporation’s family of 3D printers meets the needs of many
specialized applications, including:
• Design Prototypes:
3D print concept models, functional prototypes and presentation models
for evaluating and refining designs.
• Metal Castings:
Directly print molds, mold inserts and patterns for metal casting.
• Architecture:
Create models of architectural designs and prototypes for the design
of critical elements.
• Education:
engage students by bringing digital concepts into the real world, turning their
ideas into real-life 3D color models that they can actually hold in their hands.
• Geospatial:
easily convert Gis data into 3D landscape and cityscape models.
• Healthcare:
Rapidly produce 3D models to reduce operating time, enhance patient
and physician communications, and improve patient outcomes.
• Entertainment and the Arts:
Create avatars and consumer figurines from 3D data generated by
electronic games, animations and youth-oriented software.
“with the Z Corp. system,
we can have a discussion in the
morning, make a suggestion,
break for lunch and see the
results in the afternoon.
No other tool can do this.”

Z Corporation technology works by creating a 3D physical model directly
from digital data, layer by layer, turning concepts and ideas into real,
physical 3D models that you can hold, examine and evaluate.
A 3D CAD file is imported into the
system software. the software slices
the file into thin cross-sectional
slices, which are fed to the 3D printer.
the printer creates the model
one layer at a time by spreading
a layer of powder and inkjet
printing a binder in the crosssection of the part.
the process is repeated until every
layer is printed and the part is complete
and ready to be removed.
ZPrinters set the standard for speed, color, affordability and ease of use. within just
a few hours you, and even your colleagues with limited expertise, will be able to
operate a Z Corporation 3D printer in any standard office environment.
the wORlD’s FAstest 3D PRinteRs
AFFORDABle FOR All enviROnMents
Z Corporation 3D printers are the
world’s fastest 3D printers — five to ten
times faster than other solutions. that
means you can output models in hours,
not days. And unlike other 3D printing
solutions, you can build multiple
models at the same time, dramatically
increasing throughput. Z Corporation
high-speed solutions provide a
competitive advantage for a range of
applications, from demanding commercial environments supporting entire
engineering departments, to education
environments supporting classrooms
of 20 to 30 students.
nothing communicates better than color
3D models and product prototypes —
and only Z Corporation makes 3D color
printing accessible and available to
everyone. Color dramatically communicates engineering product designs,
vividly portrays architectural designs,
and brings animated characters to life.
you can add highlights to models with
annotations like part numbers, design
comments, and logos and better
evaluate product designs. And with
Z Corporation’s high-definition 3D
printing capabilities, you can produce
models having complex geometries
and small, detailed features.
From the initial price of the printer
to ongoing materials and operational
costs, Z Corporation delivers the
industry’s lowest cost per printed
model. Z Corporation solutions use
reliable and affordable inkjet technology, resulting in a materials usage cost
that is a fraction of the cost of other
rapid prototyping technologies. And
Z Corporation 3D printers recycle
all unused materials, so you pay only
for the actual materials used to produce
a part.
A sOlutiOn tO Meet yOuR neeDs
From the classroom to the office, from monochrome to full-color high-definition 3D printing,
Z Corporation offers a variety of solutions that meet the needs of a broad spectrum of application
environments. All are affordable, all are easy to use and all are the industry’s fastest.
ZPrinter 310 Plus
Industry standard Monochrome 3D Printing system
An ideal, entry-level rapid prototyping system, the ZPrinter 310 Plus is versatile,
allowing users to make parts quickly for early concept evaluation and testing,
painted parts for a finished look, or patterns for casting applications. it is well
suited to both office and educational environments, and can support entire
engineering departments or classrooms with ease.
ZPrinter 450
the World’s Most Automated and Affordable Color 3D Printer
the ZPrinter 450 performs most operations automatically, so you don’t have to,
and it simplifies the rest. Clean, quiet, safe, and convenient, the ZPrinter 450 outputs models five times faster than competitive systems, at one-fifth the cost. it is
the ideal introduction to color 3D printing for a wide variety of applications, from
product design, production prototypes, and architectural concepts, to education,
healthcare and the arts.
spectrum Z510
High-Definition Color 3D Printing system
the spectrum Z510’s unique 24-bit color 3D printing capability creates models
with crisply defined features, enhanced accuracy, and precise color, so you
can print and evaluate physical models of design concepts in their nearly
finished state. Color models communicate more information more clearly
than any other type of rapid prototype, providing a critical strategic advantage
in product development.
