News, Views & How-To's
In the second of our info blog hubs, we’ve made an extensive list of all the useful tips and tricks for Roland DG software, inkjet printers, flatbeds, dye-sublimation printers, CNC machines, dental milling machines and more. Also included in this rundown are some small business advice articles and other resources to help you grow your company.
Roland’s monoFab ARM-10 is the kind of device that helps engineers, product designers, artists and other creative people solve problems. At our Roland DG headquarters in Irvine, that’s exactly what we find ourselves doing more and more, as we continue to discover new ways to use this handy desktop 3D printer.
Roland DGA talked to Shawn Sims from NOTLabs about his Jurassic World Toys project and prototyping with the MDX-540S. To coincide with the merchandising of its Jurassic World collection of movie themed products, Target reached out to design trendsetters, NOTCOT, to see what they could come up with. With the help of the Roland MDX-540S rapid prototyping machine, they created custom designed and milled desktop planters that look like Lego® pieces and are simply “Rex’trodinary.”
We love to see our technology being used in educational settings. So, it was especially exciting to visit the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena to see how the next generation of industry leaders are being trained using Roland technology.
Came across this infographic on 3D printing and thought I’d share. While Roland has been in 3D in the form of CNC machining (Subtractive Rapid Prototyping) for over 30 years, we’ve only been in 3D printing (Additive Rapid Prototyping) for less than a year. Like you, we’re learning a lot about the technology and applications every day.
Interview with Rachel Hammer, 3D Product Manager for Roland DGA
The recent introduction of Roland’s new monoFab™ series ARM-10 3D printer and SRM-20 milling machine is generating a significant amount of industry and media buzz. And that’s understandable. Afterall, these state-of-the-art, compact devices are capable of doing something pretty incredible – namely, turning ideas into reality. These innovative machines, which can be used together as a system or as stand-alone devices, are attracting the attention of high-tech magazines and websites worldwide.
Not your father's CNC machine. Roland's 3D products are not an easy sell. First of all, there's so much buzz about 3D printing technology, that there's little discussion room left for the older CNC technology. Second, the market is so diverse, literally a hundred different types of customers in a variety of market niches. Trust me, from a marketing perspective, selling CNC is tough. But we believe in what we're doing. Unlike previous CNC machines that demanded that you know programming.
