DGSHAPE Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Roland DG Corporation and a leading provider of digital fabrication tools, including 3D milling machines, 3D printers, and engraving machines, announced today the launch of its latest decorating solution, the DE-3. DGSHAPE continues the legacy of Roland engraving with a new model that features laser-pointing technology, ethernet connectivity, automatic depth regulation, and other intelligent enhancements.
According to Hisashi Bito, President of DGSHAPE Corporation, “The DE-3 builds on the legacy of Roland engraving solutions that is advanced today by DGSHAPE Corporation and affirms DGSHAPE’s commitment to providing reliable desktop solutions for the entrepreneur to build their business.”
The DE-3 can produce a variety of engraving applications including industrial nameplates, signage, awards, and gift personalisation. This next generation engraver incorporates many new improvements including: Ethernet connectivity, updated nosecone technology for higher quality engraving on uneven material, data buffer for offline engraving, laser pointer for precise material alignment, and new bundled software: Dr. Engrave Plus. This new software has advanced features such as AI and EPS file support, leveling and drilling functions, and Variable Data Printing.
A cornerstone of all DGSHAPE machines, Bito said, is their ease of use. Operation is as simple as pressing a button. DGSHAPE prides itself on the concept of the “Open System.” This open architecture offers the flexibility of using design software and tooling that engraving professionals are already familiar with. The DE-3 can be connected via USB or LAN which allows for increased flexibility in any environment. Dr. Engraving Plus is a design software that can create new artwork or take existing files from popular design software packages to output to the DE-3 for a true out-of-the-box solution.
The DE-3 easily produces popular engraving applications in a variety of materials. The DE-3 can be installed via USB or Ethernet. An optional centre vice increases the available materials that can be engraved
