BURLINGTON, Mass., USA - The ZPrinter® 450 has been named one of 15 "revolutionary inventions of 2007" by Entrpreneur.com, the leading small business web site on the Internet.
"This technology could have a significant impact on many different industries that rely on models and landscapes," the web site said (www.entrepreneur.com/slideshow/188038.html), noting the machine's office environment compatibility and automated features.
Released in March, the ZPrinter 450 represents a giant step in making high-definition color 3D printing available to the masses. The machine is the first color 3D printer to break the $40,000 price point, the most highly automated, and the most compatible with contemporary office environments.
Entrepreneur.com editors sifted through hundreds of inventions that became available in the past year to compile the list of innovative, practical and fun products. The ZPrinter 450 was listed third after the iPhone and the Kindle electronic reading device.
