The recent introduction of Roland DG’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.
One of the publications impressed by Roland DG’s new 3D rapid prototyping offerings is Desktop Engineering. In fact, DE magazine just selected the monoFab series as its “Editor’s Pick of the Week,” covering both the ARM-10 and SRM-20 in a related article. In that piece, Desktop Engineering’s Editor at Large, Anthony Lockwood, notes how well known Roland DG is as a manufacturer of 3D milling machines, as well as wide-format printers, cutting machines, engravers, 3D scanners and support software. One thing they’re not well known for, he says, is 3D printing. But as Lockwood is quick to point out, that is about to change.
