Loop 3D is a 3D printer brand established by Turkish 3D printer manufacturer Teknodizayn. Based in Ankara, Teknodizayn has over 10 years of experience in the 3D printing industry, having operated as a reseller for a number of 3D printer and 3D scanner manufacturers. Its current portfolio includes 3D printers from UnionTech and HP, the company also supplies 3D scanners from Artec.
With a decade of experience, the Teknodizayn team decided to create its own 3D printer through the LOOP 3D brand. Based on practical know-how, the 3D printer addresses the requirements customers in verticals such as heavy industry, aviation, and government institutions.
The first beta model of the LOOP PRO was produced in 2017. Having gone through a series of improvements, the final iteration of the 3D printer was approved and premiered during the Formnext 2019 trade fair in Frankfurt. An FFF system, the LOOP PRO comes equipped with a build volume of 500 x 350 x 500 mm and features a modular printhead, magnetically attachable build plate, laser-assisted print bed calibration, and material conditioning unit. Additionally, the 3D printer is equipped with LOOP 3D CLOUD, a slicing, and management software developed in collaboration with 3DPrinterOS, a cloud 3D printer software developer based in San Francisco, USA.
“We are very excited to support manufacturers like Loop 3D to reach the market faster by reducing their R&D time. The net result is the customer can purchase €20,000 3D printer that exceeds the performance of a €200,000 printer. This means customers can purchase 10x more printers, at the same price point, and begin low-end production at unbelievable scale and quality,” said John Dogru, a founder of 3DPrinterOS.
