In October 2017, Kodak launched its first ever 3D printer, The Portrait. This year, in its 130th year, Kodak showcased its stunning 3D printing ecosystem at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018. It includes a specialised software, premium range of low-moisture filaments and also its new dual extruder Kodak Portrait 3D printer.

Kodak’s 3D printing ecosystem is for professionals from the field of design, academics and engineering. It was an obvious expansion direction for the imaging technology company. The timing of the launch explains how much they cherish their glorious history. In COO Demian Gawianski’s own words, “these special birthday releases shows that the company honours its history by continuing to innovate towards the technologies of the future.

The Portrait 3D printer is said to be accurate and reliable in its operation. The build size of 200 x 200 x 250 mm makes it a perfect desktop printer. Its fully enclosed metal body increases its weight but makes it more stable. With other important features like end-of-filament sensor and a nozzle wiping system prevents colour contamination after changing filaments, this printer is a delight to have at home.

It also comes with some basic features like auto bed levelling system, multi-language supporting touch screen, an activated carbon filter and an extractor fan makes it perfect for classroom usage.

CES 218 has been a special event for Kodak. One other significant launch was their Full body 3D Scanner. The 3D printed figurine market is growing rapidly and Kodak aims to take a chunk from it. For more news and information on the Kodak 3D Printer, visit the company website.
