Big Ideas Made Easy
Where Ideas Take Shape
Customising 3D objects has never been easier. With the BD-8, you can make it yours by printing vibrant graphics and detailed text directly on 3D objects — whether personalising creations for your customers or crafting branded products for your business.
Don’t Just Print Things. Make Things.
With the BD-8, designs can be printed onto a wide variety of materials, including plastics, paper, leather and wood — even glass and metal with the onboard primer ink.
Print Vibrant Light Colours on Dark Surfaces
Print light colours on dark surfaces with our white ink cartridge. Plus, with the onboard Primer ink, designs can be printed on textures like glass and metal.
Professional Print Quality Meets Ease of Use
Anyone can easily achieve professional-grade results with the BD-8. The printer supports True Rich Color 3, a print setting that helps optimise colour vibrancy and accuracy, and has a variety of print modes with built-in setting information for specific applications, ensuring optimal results on smooth, curved and uneven surfaces.
Maximum Performance. Minimum Space.
The BD-8 printer is a powerhouse in a compact frame. It can be placed on a desk, and its front-access media setup, ink loading and maintenance allow for installation against a wall. The BD-8 is safe to operate as well, thanks to its full-cover design for UV light protection, GREENGUARD Gold certified inks and built-in fume extractor.
Starter Pricing. Designed for Growth.
With the BD-8, you get professional-grade print performance at an entry-level price, designed to suit the budgets of start-ups and small, growing businesses. The printer also comes with a built-in fume extractor, so there’s no need to purchase a separate, costly air filtration unit. Users will also appreciate the included, simple-to-install design and output software.
Print on Round Surfaces with an Optional Rotary Accessory
The BD-8 makes it possible to print fully around cylindrical and curved objects up to 2 inches in diameter, such as pens, jars and small bottles, with the optional rotary printing accessory.
Printer Maintenance Made Easy
The BD-8 is equipped with innovative features that make it easy to keep the printer healthy and performing at the highest possible level, including an automatic cleaning function that cleans the surface of the printhead to remove impurities and debris. It also comes ready for use immediately after installation and our customer service team is always just a click or call away.
GREENGUARD Gold Certified ECO-UV 5 (EUV5) Ink
The BD-8 printer’s specially formulated, wide-gamut ECO-UV5 inks print beautifully, dry instantly, and adhere well on a wide variety of materials. These high-quality inks have also earned GREENGUARD Gold certification – the world’s most stringent and comprehensive standard for low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into indoor air.
Included FlexiDesigner VersaSTUDIO Edition Software
The BD-8 comes bundled with FlexiDESIGNER VersaSTUDIO Edition design and output software that allows even those with little or no printing experience to start customising and personalising products with colourful, attention-grabbing graphics immediately after purchasing their printers. This feature-filled, intuitive software is a complete solution, providing a host of useful tools for creating shapes, text, and effects, while also simplifying workflow.
Included VersaWorks 6 Output Software
For users looking for even greater control over output settings and capabilities, the BD-8 printer comes with VersaWorks 6 output software. Easy to use and powerful, it offers features and tools that optimise quality and streamline processes for the print, ink, and media. VersaWorks also simplifies the setup of print layouts and comes with built-in colour management tools to make reproducing specific colours easier than ever.
