Mcor Arke Full Color Desktop Paper 3D Printer: Stack Over a New Leaf

by Lambert Varias

Back in 2013, we found out about Mcor’s Iris, an industrial 3D printer that can print objects in full color, thanks in no small part to the fact that it uses paper as its main component. This year, Mcor is launching the Arke, a more compact, affordable and user-friendly version of the Iris.

The Arke works much like the Iris, but is even more self-contained. While Iris doesn’t handle the 2D printing step, Arke does every step of the process. It prints cross-sections, applies adhesive, stacks and heats paper, all in its relatively compact form. It can also handle multiple simultaneous prints, and can even pause and then resume printing.

Mcor also claims that it worked hard to make its software user-friendly. Its free desktop software will let you customize, load and monitor prints. Its mobile app will also let you monitor prints in progress as well as share designs. You’ll be able to load 3D files over Wi-Fi, Ethernet and USB. Finally, there’s an LED progress bar and a touchscreen control panel on the Arke itself.

Here are some objects that Arke printed:
