HURCO has developed a 3-D printing head that acts like a standard tool. In seconds you can convert any HURCO vertical machining center with version 10 software into a 3D Printer. The head is a completely self-contained and runs off of the spindle rotation. The spindle turns a generator in the printer head that controls the heat and the feed. No wires, cables, etc.. Just manually load the tool into the spindle and print.
If you already have a printer and you want to print a HURCO conversational or NC file, you can export that program into an STL file at the machine. The file can be transferred directly from the HURCO WINmax control to your printer via USB, Ethernet, or Thumb Drive.
