At RAPID, Diabase will introduce the H-Series: a carefully designed hybrid machine tool combining 3D printing, milling, and post-processing capabilities in a single build environment. The machine has been carefully engineered to solve real problems in the desktop manufacturing toolchain. It is a tool for prosumers and institutions, enabling the manufacture of functional products with high accuracy and professional finish.

With up to 9 tool positions allowing 5 completely independent direct-drive Flexion filament extruders, 4 subtractive tool positions, and a number of other sensing and processing tool options, the H-Series turret tool-changer is a necessary yet groundbreaking advancement in rapid prototyping. H-Series machines are incredibly powerful and capable, but affordable for both individuals and institutions on a limited budget.
