Nano Dimension DragonFly LDM PCB 3D Printer
The Nano Dimension DragonFly LDM (Lights-Out Digital Manufacturing) system is a PCB (Printed Circuit Board) 3D printer that allows manufacturers to 3D print functioning electronics and circuits with little to no interaction or monitoring. This additive manufacturing automation provides a significant decrease in time and cost for realizing proprietary or prototype electronic circuits by 3D printing them in-house.

The Nano Dimension DragonFly PCB 3D printer series uses an inkjet deposition system that allows for simultaneous 3D printing of conductive silver nanoparticle ink (metal) and insulating ink (dielectric polymer) in a single print job. This technology enables product developers to design complex functional components and to print polymers and metals together to create functional parts such as printed circuit boards (PCBs), flexible electronics, antennas/RFIDs, sensors, electromagnets, molded interconnect devices (MIDs) and other experimental circuits right off the printer tray.
The Nano Dimension DragonFly LDM offers uninterrupted 3D printing capabilities for longer periods of time with more up time and improved yield. This model includes both automatic print head self-cleaning and automatic material monitoring for additional automation of the printing process and requiring less manual supervision.
Nano Dimension's free add-in for SOLIDWORKS software creates a design environment optimized for 3D printing multi-material electronics. Complex prototypes consisting of both polymers and metals can be designed in SOLIDWORKS and 3D printed on the DragonFly in a single build process.
Key advantages of the Nano Dimension
Reduces development cycles times. Enables on-site prototyping in a matter of hours instead of weeks, even for complex designs.
Eliminates need for large order minimums. 3D printed electronics provides the ability to discover design errors in early development stage with agile rapid.
Enables long, uninterrupted runs round the clock, with minimal supervision, allowing an improvement of overall throughput of the PCB 3D printer.
Automatic PCB 3D printer printhead management mechanism and algorithms, allowing for uninterrupted printing with minimal print job set up and preventive maintenance.
Enables expanded, non conformal design, unbounded by 2D planar limitations, to achieve improved miniaturization and real-estate utilization.
Multi-material Additive Manufacturing enables functional, compact, denser, non-planar electronics parts.
SAFE AND ASSURED MANUFACTURING
3D printed electronic circuits and boards enable retention of sensitive IP in-house during development. Eliminates concerns relating to IP theft, infringement, data security and more.
Limits environmental impact through optimized design, size & weight. Reduces waste with additive manufacturing capabilities.

MODEL MATERIALS Nano Dimension's Conductive and Dielectrc Inks:
- AgCite Conductive Ink: An advanced silver nanoparticle ink designed specifically for DragonFly 3D Printers. The size and distribution of the silver particles are optimized for the printing of highly conductive traces.
- Dielectric Ink: This polymer material mimics the dielectric properties of industry FR4. The ink insulates the conductive inks, enabling the printing of the entire circuit structure. The material is stable across large frequency ranges. Designed for compatibility with Nano Dimension’s AgCite™ conductive ink.
