Mimaki Collaboration at 3D Printer Shows

3D Printer Shows

Mimaki USA, a leading manufacturer of 3D full-color printers, wide format 2D inkjet printers, and cutters, has announced a collaboration with Autodesk, Inc., to present how to bring 3D data from the design, engineering, and entertainment industries to life by utilizing Autodesk software and Mimaki full-color 3D technology. Mimaki will be exhibiting this technology at 3D printer shows globally in early summer 2023.

Autodesk is a leading provider of design software for the media and entertainment, product design & manufacturing, and architecture, engineering, & construction industries. 3D data can be brought to life by combining Autodesk Fusion360/Netfabb software with Mimaki’s 3DUJ-553 and 3DUJ-2207 3D printers, which produce full-color models in more than 10 million colors using UV-cured photopolymer resins.

At this year’s 3D printer shows, Mimaki will present a full-color world created with Autodesk software and Mimaki 3D printers through a variety of exhibits, including:

Media & Entertainment
