Why xRook?

We took the iconic 3D printed rook and gave it a major upgrade. Redesigned mesh walls, added textures, and embossed and engraved text, and a complex unsupported hand structure inside all highlight XiP’s detail capabilities.

xRook Mesh Walls

Mesh Walls

Mesh walls show an important capability of design for lightweighting parts. An element that is nearly impossible with other technologies.

xRook Text Embossed

Text Embossed and Engraved

Text printed on XiP is not only legible but beautiful. xRook displays text throughout both embossed and engraved.

xRook Dynamic Texturing

Dynamic Texturing

XiP is capable of producing high level detail in texturing, enabling unique design elements that stand out.

xRook Complex Unsupported Internal Structure

Complex Unsupported Internal Structure

At the center of xRook is a complex hand reaching for the sky. xRook is printed entirely without supports showcasing XiP’s unique capabilities.

xRook Span Bridging

Span Bridging

Fine feature bridging saves time and reduces the need for additional supports.

xRook Smooth Surface Finish

Smooth Surface Finish

XiP is capable of smooth surface finish with 50 micron layer height and antialiasing technology for sub-pixel xy resolution.
