Multi-Material 3D Printing


materials - multi

Simultaneous multi-material 3D printing is a revolutionary approach that paves the way towards redefining how compact, dense and non-planar the electronics of tomorrow can be.

The DragonFly™ Pro is fitted with two printheads, one for nano-Silver and the other for dielectric polymer ink. This set-up allows the DragonFly™ Pro to concurrently print with both advanced inks in one print job.

Optimized 3D Software - Switch



Powering the DragonFly™ Pro is Switch, a 3D-optimized software package that prepares electronic designs for printing on the DragonFly™ Pro. 

Switch supports customary file formats in the electronics industry such as Gerber, VIA and DRILL. It presents a unique interface that displays a detailed and accurate rendition of design's structure, thus facilitating a highly precise 3D print job. 

With Switch, users will be able to adjust many characteristics of the 3D file, such as layer thickness, conductor width, layer order, punching, rotation options as well as the shape or object outline. In addition, the software enables an optimization of the printing process by maximizing the use of the printing surface.

Virtually Limitless Design Flexibility


vlcsnap-2018-10-09-16h33m05s389

Synthesizing precision and accuracy with multi-material 3D printing, the DragonFly™ Pro unlocks a whole new world of design possibilities for printed electronics. A wide array of Printed Circuit Board (PCB) features, such as vias and through-holes, can be fully 3D printed in-house without subsequent etching, drilling and plating. A range of non-planar electronic components, such as Molded Interconnect Devices (MIDs) and electromagnets, can also be printed and tested on-the-fly.

The DragonFly™ Pro is transforming how product development teams work – waiting days or weeks for a custom prototype to be fabricated offsite can finally be a thing of the past. The freedom to innovate empowers progress, encourages product advancement, lowers development risks and enables faster time-to-market. Ultimately, it creates a better end-product.

FAQs

  1. How ready is the DragonFly™ Pro system?
    The printer is now available for purchase.

  2. How many layers does it print?
    The printer prints boards of up to 200 * 200 * 3 mm. Different designs require different layer thicknesses, so the number of layers we can print depends on the design of the board. We support anything up to 3mm and we see no layer count limitation at this stage.

  3. What are the printing specifications?
    The printer prints ca. 100 um traces, ca. 125 um spaces, and a minimum layer thickness of 3 um.

  4. How much does it cost to print?
    It depends on the type of board, complexity, and volume of prototyping you do. Some boards could cost as little as $10 to print where a standard prototype might cost several thousand dollars. Another major value is the time saved, the increased confidentiality and accelerated innovation. The more prototyping, the higher the return on investment. In addition, an in-house 3D system will help change the way you work. Teams will work in parallel, rather than one after the other.

  5. How close are the materials to traditional materials?
    The ink materials are engineered to give close performance to traditional materials. Nanoparticle Silver inks provide conductivity and are solderable whereas our dielectric formulations simulate FR4 electrically and in terms of Td and Tg.

  6. Are the materials suitable for soldering?
    Yes, they are compatible with hand soldering, solder glue and vapor/ reflow soldering. We recommend low temperature pastes such as tin bismuth for example.

  7. Can I send you a sample to print?
    Yes, you can send a Gerber file, within our design rules and specifications. We can also send you a coupon under NDA.
