Mcor Brings Most Powerful Color 3D Printer to SolidWorks World


DUNLEER, Ireland, Jan. 8 – Mcor Technologies Ltd, maker of the 3D printers with the industry's highest color capability, will introduce the Mcor IRIS 3D color printer to an American audience for the first time at SolidWorks World, January 20-23 at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin hotel in Orlando, FL, Booth #304.

The low-cost, eco-friendly Mcor IRIS, made available in December, prints in more than one million hues simultaneously as it creates durable, photo-realistic physical objects from 3D data. Mcor takes its unique "TRUE Color" capability a major step further by rendering color as rich, vibrant and complex as it appears on a computer screen. That's because the build material is paper, the original and natural medium for colored ink. In addition to offering TRUE Color capability, the IRIS delivers the lowest operating cost of any commercial-class 3D printer.

Mcor recently made headlines through its deal with Staples Printing Systems Division to launch a new 3D printing service, called "Staples Easy 3D," online via the Staples Office Centre. Staples' Easy 3D will provide consumers, product designers, architects, healthcare professionals, educators, students and others with low-cost, brilliantly colored, photo-realistic 3D printed products from Staples stores. Customers will simply upload electronic files to the Staples Office Centre and pick up the models in their nearby Staples stores, or have them shipped to their address. Staples will produce the models with the Mcor IRIS.

What: SolidWorks World 2013. View live demonstrations of the Mcor IRIS and handle 3D printed models.

When: Partner Pavilion Hours are:

  • Monday 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Tuesday 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Where: Booth #304
