RIZE announces the XRize.
WOBURN, Mass., USA November 7, 2018
In a giant leap to deliver flexibility and scalability to customers, RIZE INC., a Boston, USA-based, next-generation additive manufacturing company, has announced new hardware, materials and IoT functionality: XRIZE™, the world’s first true color desktop industrial 3D printer, RIZIUM™ CARBON and RIZIUM™ ENDURA materials and the RIZE™ CONNECT cloud platform.
Until now, users had to produce non-functional color parts or implement very expensive solutions, making tradeoffs between color, strength and price. These tradeoffs have limited the expansion of additive manufacturing to users across the enterprise and inhibited true innovation. Moreover, companies had to purchase separate 3D printers to achieve varying capabilities, including office use, full color, end-use and production parts and the ability to use carbon fiber and other materials.
For the first time in the industry, XRIZE enables users to manufacture functional polymer and composite parts in full color. And since RIZE’s intelligent and innovative solutions focus on the user as much as the machine, XRIZE is easy to use, safe and enables markup to provide much-desired IP security, traceability and branding.
Like RIZE’s first product, RIZE™ ONE, the experience of using the XRIZE 3D printer is as easy and safe as an office 2D printer. Providing a safe, clean process, minimal pre- and post-processing and minimal material management, users throughout the enterprise, from engineering to marketing to the manufacturing floor, can use XRIZE to easily manufacture full-color prototypes for FEA and stress analysis, tooling with safety instructions, consumer products, package design, GIS mapping, anatomical parts for patient/clinician communication, pre-surgical planning and parts for marketing and the entertainment industry.
XRIZE leverages RIZE’s patented Augmented Deposition process by extruding an engineering-grade thermoplastic and simultaneously jetting C, M, Y, K (cyan, magenta, yellow and black) inks through industrial printheads to achieve the full-color part. RELEASE INK is jetted between the part and the automatically-generated supports to enable the user to quickly peel the supports away from the part, leaving a smooth surface finish and eliminating the need for additional finishing. With RIZE ONETOUCH software, users can quickly and easily apply text, images and texture maps to monochrome part files and import color CAD files.

With an MSRP of $55K USD (and €55K Euro), XRIZE will be available in 2019.
RIZIUM™ CARBON Material
RIZIUM CARBON is an engineering-grade thermoplastic filament reinforced with carbon fiber for a
superior visual finish and higher modulus. RIZIUM CARBON is ideal for applications such as functional
prototyping for manufacturing.
RIZIUM™ ENDURA Material
RIZIUM ENDURA is a fiber-reinforced filament providing high-accuracy and high-impact strength. It is
ideal for large functional parts and is compatible with RIZE’s full-color inks.
RIZE CONNECT enables users to remotely manage and monitor their RIZE ONE and XRIZE 3D printers
from any location to improve production efficiency. Users can receive notifications, queue jobs and
manage an enterprise print farm from desktop and mobile devices. Using RIZE CONNECT, users can also
build greater security into their parts with digital part identification and other forms of part
augmentation, such as QR codes and version control for part traceability, compliance and authenticity.
RIZE CONNECT will be available in 2019.
“Our mission from the beginning has been inclusive and sustainable innovation,” said Andy Kalambi,
President and CEO of RIZE. “With this approach, we can take additive manufacturing anywhere and to
everyone. The way to do that is to make industrial 3D printing easy, safe and fully digital. Our innovative

Cimquest Announces Partnership with Rize
Branchburg, NJ (October 12, 2017)
Cimquest has announced an agreement with Rize Inc. to sell and support the Rize 3D printing platform in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast territories, encompassing the state of Virginia all the way through Maine. In addition to their current offerings of HP and Desktop Metal 3D printers, Cimquest can now offer the Rize™ One powered by the patented Augmented Polymer Deposition (APD) process.
“With so many new introductions of 3D Printers over the last several years failing to meet customers’ expectations, it is very refreshing to see how Rize has hit the mark in quality, reliability and performance with the new Rize One 3D Printer, said Rob Hassold, Founder and CEO of Cimquest. “With the unmatched ability to produce uniform part strength in a machine that is environmentally safe, we are seeing amazing interest from many business sectors such as: schools and universities as well as military applications in confined spaces.”
“We are delighted to partner with Cimquest.” said Rize Founder and resident, Eugene Giller. “As one of the leading additive manufacturing and CAD/CAM integrators in North America, Cimquest is ideally positioned to bring the unique material properties and process benefits of Rize’s patented, APD technology to its customer base.”
Suitable for a lab, office or field environment, Rize™ One is the only 3D printer that harnesses Rize’s patented Augmented Polymer Deposition (APD) platform. APD involves the simultaneous extrusion of Rize’s own compound of engineering- and medical-grade thermoplastic and jetting functional inks wherever they are needed to change the material properties of the thermoplastic at the voxel level. This enables users to jet Release One ink between the support material and the part for quick, easy, clean and safe support removal with their hands. This can be immediately followed by printing and Marking Ink, for 3D printing detailed text and images in and on parts. Rize parts are watertight and have isotropic strength, are twice as strong as ABSplus and even stronger than polycarbonate and carbon fiber-reinforced parts in the Z-axis. They have a high HDT, can be sterilized and provide chemical resistance to acid, acetone, alcohol and more. Moreover, the APD process and materials are safe and environmentally friendly and the printer itself is desktop size, so it can be used virtually anywhere for fast, easy and affordable production of replacement and custom tooling, fixtures, jigs and end-use parts.
Cimquest will demonstrate Rize APD technology and the Rize One 3D printer at next week’s Advanced Manufacturing Expo, where Eugene will also deliver a presentation, “The Challenges Additive Manufacturing Technologies Face in Achieving Isotropic Strength
