Softshaper-New release

SOFTSHAPER New Release.

SOFTSHAPER – the professional software tailored to the needs of industrial printing machines in FDM technology, also compatible with low-budget 3D printers, has just presented the latest release of its essential functions.
As the creators assure, it is worth to consider exchanging the existing software to a software well suited to high technological and material requirements in thermoplastic printing technology.
Grouping layers.
SOFTSHAPER was one of the first to offer an Innovative Layer Modification Solution – Individual modification of individual or groups of layers to assign a separate print technology.

Example of grouping layers for a set of models.

Infill modification.

Automatic selection of groups due to the size of the geometry.

Most applications that control the printing process modify the infill parameters, supports or contours […]

Due to the covid-19 pandemic, for security reasons, we decided to postpone the premiere of 5ax.

The premiere of 5AX has been postponed.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, for security reasons, we decided to postpone the premiere of 5AX. The exact date will be announced soon.
The current situation in the country and the world makes us all aware of the responsibility we bear for the safety of ourselves and other people.

Alarming information and restrictions introduced to limit the spread of the pandemic prompted our company to decide to postpone the release of the newest five-axis 3D printer – 5AX – planned for May 26 – to the nearest safe date. Given the high interest in the solutions offered by our company, all information and current dates of events will be available on our website and our social media channels.

We hope that soon […]

Vshaper against Covid19

VSHAPER against Covid19

The epidemic situation in the country and the world does not leave anyone indifferent.
The crisis that we start to slowly encounter increases the feeling of uncertainty and concern for our loved ones. On the other hand, we notice many manifestations of selfless support and willingness to help, which allows us to look into the future with optimism.

Today, as perhaps never before, we understand the need for rapid production on-demand – manufacturing adjusted to current demand, production of spare parts on-site, due to lack of supply or long waiting time. The subjects of 3d printed personal and medical protective equipment, prototypes of respirators and other replaceable parts of the medical apparatus, occupy a large part of current media information.
3d printing […]

World premiere of VSHAPER 5AX - the 5-axis 3d printer

VSHAPER 5AX Machine exceeds the limitations of 3d printing technology.

We move the needle forward with VSHAPER 5AX Machine.
WORLD PREMIERE – REGISTER HERE
As a manufacturer of machines that print in the FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) technology, dedicated to the industrial and production sectors, VSHAPER well understands the directions of 3D printing technology development. Together with the preparations for the May world premiere of the latest innovation – 5AX – a 3d printing and machining machine that operates in 5 axes – VSHAPER opens an entirely new space for engineering applications for printing thermoplastic materials.

A lot has already been written about the advantages of manufacturing in 3d printing technology. About the flexibility of production, it provides as well as about the possibilities that it gives to designers, inventors, and engineers […]

Vshaper's Product Manager predictions for FDM Industry for 2020.

FDM Industry Predictions for 2020

The 3D printer trade expands every year. Possibilities, which deliver the additive print technology with thermoplastic materials shaped for industry, astonish. The business is in continual development, and the need for the next innovations is increasing. The main idea of spreading the material layer by layer until the right shape is built may appear simple. While thinking of prototyping applications, it sure is, and there are no difficulties in this these days. The 3D print has entered into the high-end tools processes as a support for production lines, maintenance, and service, and more and more often as an alternative to injection molding or cutting processes – for smaller series. If we want to predict directions of development of 3d […]

The Subcarpathian Economic Award statuette 2019 in the Innovations cathegory went to VSHAPER.

2019 Subcarpathian Economic Award Gala.

This year’s SUBCARPATHIAN ECONOMIC AWARD statuette, in the Innovations category, went to VSHAPER team. The more meaningful it is because we were the only company awarded in this category. The VSHAPER’s CEO, Tomasz Szymański, received this special statuette on behalf of the whole company.

Vshaper supports Fakro development

3D print technology supports Fakro development.

The Fakro company which is present on polish and global markets, the worldwide leader in skylights and attic stairs production, joins to the list of VSHAPER  users – the producer of industrial 3D printers.

In 2019 Fakro’s Development and Research department engineers decided to enrich their machinery park with a new industrial 3D printer. Once test prints have been analysed, and all offers have been compared, they agreed on the VSHAPER 500 machine. Print parameters that enriched VSHAPER, as well as quality-price balance,  turned out to be fundamental values. Moreover, Facro specialists appreciate the equipment of VSHAPER 500.

Actively heated chamber and, the print bed;
Exchangeable V-JET heads with a patented nozzle with increased service life.
Vacuated system for build […]

Conventional_vs_Additive manufacturing comperison

What does it mean that 3D printing technology pays off?

Does the claim such as “additive manufacturing is always profitable” is entirely correct. The answer to this question should be easy to establish, but it isn’t. As we know, production depends on many factors, not directly related to the process but affected the final cost. While determining the projected budget for separate projects, we always use an individual approach. Based on many years of industry observations though, we can recognise particular regularities and precisely determine what and in which case is noticeably cheaper.

Let’s see in which cases the additive manufacturing is competitive to conventional production processes (e.g. plastic injection). The very first analyse shows that marginal costs (variable unit costs without acquisition/depreciation costs) in additive manufacturing remain on a […]
