At Nectar we’re developing a modular 3D printer meant for the enterprise. The fact that our printer consists hardware modules means that it is cheaper and faster for our customers to service the Nectar One. One can simply swap out a component for another rather than stop the entire printer and repair it for a number of hours. In due time this also means that we can individually upgrade our hardware components without our customers having to replace their entire machines.
One of our core hardware modules is our integrated HEPA/Carbon filter system. This unique filter was custom made for the Nectar One and we’ve written about this before here. The fact that the filter is a small form factor module that can easily be replaced by the user when it is end of life means that it is an easy safety feature to implement and maintain. The filter also keeps the air in your office or manufacturing space clean. VOCs and fumes from 3D printers may be harmful, depending on the material and how they’re dispersed. We wanted to take no risks with this and this is why we developed our filter. We now have some testing results to share with you to show you how effective it is.
