Team of young engineers create first 3D printer that is hundred per cent Romanian

A young software maker has created the first Romanian 3D printer, built entirely of components acquired from the domestic market.

Calin Brandabur presented his prototype, which has a 5-time higher printing speed than a similar printer existing on the market, at the Techsylvania, which is the biggest event in information technology in the Transylvanian region held early this week in Cluj Napoca.

The printer can print objects reaching a maximum of 20 centimetres in height in 4-5 hours, while a similar printer needs 8 hours to make such a piece.

‘A classic Cartesian printer takes 8 hours to print an object, while our printer only needs 4-5 hours. We also improved the software and the hardware, we tried to upgrade as much as possible the speed and performance. We can increase the speed very much, without causing a vibration, due to the Delta system we used to build the printer, which also makes it so high-performing,’ Calin Brandabur, who is from Timisoara, explained.
