11.05.16 Artikel Online auf 3Druck: Statement zu Desktop SLA-Druck
"Im Zeitraffer wachsen Objekte aus einer Flüssigkeit, gekoppelt über Stützstrukturen, senkrecht hängend an einer metallischen Platte. Was im ersten Moment wie die Geburt eines berühmten Filmroboters aus der metallischen Flüssigkeit aussieht, entspricht in Wirklichkeit dem langsamen schichtweisen Polymerisieren von UV-härtenden Harzen...."
Wir haben eine ausführliche Meinung zu SLA Betriebs- und Wartungskosten über 3Druck.com veröffentlicht. Den Artikel finden sie hier.

01.10.2015 DruckWege Offers Further Solutions with the Z-Vat for More Durable Resin Vats for SLA Printers
DruckWege connects with a manufacturer from California, USA, to expand services and products on durable and highly resistant resin vats as used in SLA printers. Both products, the Z-Vat and
DruckWege's ReCoat Kit, harmonize very well with each other and form a reliable alternative for resin vats. The Z-Vat is a tray made of glass and polycarbonate. In contrast to the vats
usually shipped by printer vendors, the vat is not fully made of plastics. By using glass instead of acrylic there is no degradation due to UV exposure. Still, a polymere layer (PDMS) is
necessary between the glass and the resin in order to reduce peeling forces to a minimum. Worn-out PDMS layers can be replaced with ReCoat which perfectly complements with a glass vat. ReCoat's
philosophy is to allow DIY repair of cloudy resin vats. By adding the Z-Vat to this solution, DruckWege presents an integrated solution with superior quality.
You can place orders or questions to both products here.

07.09.2015 DruckWege Teams Up with Local Varnishing Company Farbwechsel (Colorchange)
DruckWege teams up with local varnishing experts Farbwechsel for enabling a broader service spectrum in colorfinishing of products. Our services focus on individuality and precision. Often, color-individuality is a lacking issue in the world of 3D printing. Filament or resin suppliers offer a variety in colors and functions with various properties. Still, customer demands claim more flexibility in colors, e.g. given by color systems like RAL with thousands of standardized colors. In consequence, we matched our 3D printing services with a local provider of vanishing to offer a broader range of product finishing for your optimal print model. Our partner is valued as high quality service provider for varnishing through independent parties which is 100% in line with our quality demands.

15.07.2015 Kickstarter Day FINISH (Dedication to our backers!)
we'd like to thank you as backer of our campaign! We were really happy about supportive action, still, we need to announce that we didn't acquired enough backers, so the kickstarter campaign failed in the end.
BUT, we received high encouragement in vairous forums, open discussions on trade shows and dialogues with inquiries through our webpage on the practicability of the Kit, the better adhesion properties, easy dosing and mixing procedure as well as the durability of ReCoat. In many ways the technical details were short-cutted, what we actually tried to make transparent through the campaign.
Now, we still intend to distribute the Kit through our company and to keep up the DIY-philosophy with the advantages of cost savings in maintenance investments.
We are back in negotiations with our suppliers, and work for the realization of costs for a ReCoat Kit below 50% of the expenses for new resin vats.
If you are still interested in the delivery of the Kit, we could issue you a quotation quickly. Just send us a short mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or via our Contact-Site on www.druckwege.com
THANK YOU AGAIN for your support. We really appreciate this! One more hint: stay tuned on our news section or on twitter (@druckwege) ;-)
You should remain interested in us as SLA-printer-user.

24.06.2015 Kickstarter DAY 9
Hey Backers and future Backers,
From many talks and questions that are arising during the last days, we'd like to summarize them for you and bring the core properties of the ReCoat together in this update:
21.06.2015 Kickstarter DAY 6
Hey Backers and future Backers,
we had many request to show you how the ReCoat kit will be applied. Since we are not completely 100% with the design finishing of our pouches and cartridges, yet, the later look might change slightly, but the workflow and procedure will be the same. The materials for recoating, as shown in the video, will remain.
The following video shows how a resin vat which is restored with a single pouch. We separated the videos in five steps.

We participated with a booth and the presentation of our services on 3Day in Cologne. It was a great show! Thanks to the very proffesional organization of the exhibiton and all interested visitors.
20.06.2015 Kickstarter DAY 5
Dear backers and future backers,
many of you have asked us some great questions since the Kickstarter campaign launched 5 days ago asking about what the benefits of the ReCoat Kit are.
The answer is: You can save a lot of money!
We did the math on that and like to point out the advantages of the ReCoat Kit. Let's dive into it:
We defined user groups ranging from casual to professional, with an annual consumption of resin vats:
Now, let's assume assume that a new vat costs around ~65€*.
The potential cost savings range between minimum (prizes per single pouch) to maximum (e.g. value packs):
If we succeed with Kickstarter we are backed to negotiate with our suppliers and we can reach the best prize for everyone!
18.06.2015 Kickstarter DAY 3
DAY 3 is reached! What a tough start...We are present in various blogs to discuss the ReCoat Kit wth the 3D scene. please contribute! We really appreciate your statements, comments and cheers!

14.06.2015 Pre-Announcement Kickstarter Campaign
News on our new product: ReCoat by DruckWege will be launched tomorrow on kickstarter. We will provide a first source for a DIY repair kit with a coating replacement of your resin vat's silicone layer for SLA printers. ReCoat can be used for refurbishing your old resin vats.
Safe time and cost with ReCoat by DruckWege when your prints start to fail from cloudy resin vats. The influence of UV light causes accelerated ageing of the polymeric layers (including the vat itself) during the actual printing process. After a couple of prints, the only solution that is recommended by common SLA printer manufacturers: buy a new resin vat. We found a solution that allows you to replace the worn-out silicone layer with ReCoat and still use your resin vat without buying a new one.
Stay tuned! The kickstarter campaign will be launched tomorrow, mon 15.06.2015!
Gather early bird packages and be part as first supporter to launch this product.
We'll keep you updated!
