The other notable feature of the 3D printer is the drive system: The printing plate is moved by means of rack and pinion drive, the device is consequently comprised of relatively few, very rugged components – which are all visible and accessible. They reported that BLACK is hardly susceptible to errors and is nearly maintenance-free. In case of a malfunction, it is also very easy to repair.


What is most impressive about BLACK is its precision and speed. The diameter of the nozzles is 0.4 millimeters, the individually applied layers are as little as 50 micrometers thin. This corresponds to the thickness of a human hair, enabling iRapid to achieve the utmost in 3D resolution and modeling. At the same time the printer can process up to 100 millimeters per second.
