The VELO3D Sapphire is the next generation in metal laser powder bed fusion. While conventional systems often require supports for any surface below 45 degrees, Sapphire uniquely enables designs with overhangs down to zero degrees. Sapphire is designed from the ground up with production in mind. Offering the same SupportFree capability and quality control in two different build volumes, Sapphire supports a comprehensive list of applications. Sapphire integrates with VELO3D Flow™ pre-print software and Assure™ quality assurance and control system. Sapphire’s cylindrical 315 mm diameter build chamber is now available in 400 mm and 1000 mm configurations.
