Origin, developer of an open platform for additive mass production, announced it is shipping its manufacturing-grade 3D printer, Origin One. In the last 6 months, the company has more than doubled its printer install base with Global Fortune 500 customers across the United States, Ireland, Germany and Denmark, in industries including footwear, automotive, contract manufacturing and government.
“Shipping our first production printer, Origin One, is a huge milestone for the company,” says Chris Prucha, co-founder, and CEO of Origin. “The tremendous customer growth and demand we've seen for the printer, as well as the positive reception from our open material network, is extremely gratifying and proof that we've created a platform that our customers need.”
Since May, Origin has made product improvements to Origin One through software. These updates have increased Origin One's useable build area, print speed, chemistry capabilities, and surface quality. More improvements are planned for the near future.
“Equipped with a true 4k lithography engine and a native resolution of 50μm, Origin One has the highest resolution and most flexible polymer process available in additive manufacturing today,” says Prucha.
In May, the company moved into a new office in San Francisco that is more than three times the size of the company's previous office and includes a much larger lab that will help the company optimize its software and validate materials for Origin One to meet growing demand, the company says.
