There is yet another 3D Printer that will soon be launched in a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. It is from an Italian company called MakerDreams, and it will include a few quite unique features. The Indiegogo campaign is expected to launch sometime in March, although a specific date has not yet been chosen.
First and foremost, the printer has a larger build size than most 3D Printers in its class; 280x210x200mm.
“The aim of our project ‘Maker Dreams’ and of our first model “iNventOne” is to offer a safe, accurate, solid, fast and cheap 3D printer with a simple but appealing design,” explained Luca Faggiotto, one of the projects founders. “This is because we want to let every person have access to it, at home, in the office or at school.”
Luca and his brother Federico are the founders of MakerDreams. They started the company, in hopes of providing a printer that isn’t exactly the same as all the others you see out there today.
“Our 3D printer is particularly designed for children safety considering their increasing use of them,” said Luca. “For this reason, there is only one front-hinged opening and once closed, there is no access to the internal moving parts and hot ends.”
One of the reasons why MakerDreams thinks this printer will be so attractive to consumers, is well…. the physical attractiveness of the printer itself. It won’t look like your typical 3D printer. It will actually have a cool looking design (as seen below). It will also come in your choice of either white or black.
As for print quality, this PLA printer promises to print in 100 microns, using an extruder nozzle diameter of 0.3mm. It will be able to read and print STL, OBJ and G-Code files.
Here are some more specs:
– Print technology: fused filament fabrication
– Build volume: 28 lx 21 wx 20 h cm [11.0 x 8.2 x 7.8 in] – Layer resolution: 100 microns [0.0039 in] – Precision positioning: xy: 11 microns [0.0004 in] – z: 2.5 microns [0.0001 in] – Filament diameter: 1.75 mm [0.069 in] – Nozzle diameter: 0.3 mm [in 0015] – Product dimensions without spool: 50 (w) x 40 (w) x 43 (h) cm [19.1 x 12.8 x 14.7 in] – Product weight: kg 18.5 [25.4 lbs]
The printer will utilize a CoreXY system, which Luca explained as follows
“The mechanism we have applied is the CoreXY which helps to simplify the movements and makes the printer solid and cheap: 6 idler pulleys actually assist in belt moving guaranteeing fluid motions. The rails contain recirculating ball bearing carriers designed and selected for reliable and accurate motion and they do prevent the various problems commonly raising in the other 3D printers.”
The price for this printer? For the first 60 orders the special price will be €725,00 ($999,00), while the rest of the orders will be priced at €800,00 ($1100,00) on Indigogo. Will you consider backing this on Indiegogo? Discuss at 3DPrintBoard.
