Recently a Chinese company has emerged claiming to supply industrial strength, full colour 3D Printers.
Qingdao Unique Products Develop co.,ltd produces and distributes the AnyPrint Unique 3D Printer range. They have launched a very comprehensive range of 3D Printers which includes popular rip offs of the MakerBot range, massive human statue printers, chocolate 3D printers and even claim to have a 3D Bio Printer. But what caught our eye was the announcement of an industrial, full colour, plastic 3D printer with build volumes in excess of 500 x 500 x 500mm. Currently the only full colour 3D plastic printers on the market are produced by 3D Systems. MCor produces a paper 3D printer and Objet has a limited colour plastic printer.
What makes us sceptical that any of their range of 3D printers exist are the released pictures of these industrial full colour plastic 3D printers.
So how genuine is this company? What does that say for the rest of the range of 3D printers?
A Human Prototyping 3D Printer? A Clothing 3D Printer? Chocolate 3D Printer? Bio 3D Printer? All with the same FDM specifications? There seems to be nothing Unique about Any of this.
Further research has revealed that this company produces technologies to print on object like coffee mugs and T Shirts.
