Rova-Paste Launches First Ever Fully Assembled Food & Paste 3D Printer for Under $1000
Back in June, at the height of the 3D printing ‘crowdfunding wars’, where we literally saw two to three new machines launch every week, each trying to outdo one another, one such machine really stood out from the crowd. Ord Solutions launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund their MH3000 R2 (later renamed RoVa3D) 3D printer. This project came on the heels of a successful campaign in October of 2013, in which they raised over $100,000 for the original MH3000 R1. The latest printer was able to print in 5 colors during a single project, and was set up differently from most of the machines we were used to seeing.
The success of the RoVa3D has led the company to expand their scope. Today, they have announced the launching of yet another Kickstarter campaign, this time for a new 3D printer, the Rova-Paste.
The Rova Paste is the first fully assembled paste/food 3D printer on the market for under $1000 CAD. Basically what the company has done, is take the platform of the RoVa3D, then they reconfigured and combined it with a paste extruding system. The new printer will be able to print with both edible and inedible materials, without the use of any heat. With that said, there are options for heated paste extruders, as well as an option for a heating/cooling build platform, and filament extruders.
The system is very simply, meaning it will likely last quite a long time. Ord Solutions claims to “overbuild” their machines in order to ensure their longevity. Whether you are looking to print with icing, Nutella, clay based materials, or caulk, the options are literally endless.
“You can start playing the “Will it print?” game,” explained the company. “The point is that if you run out of material you can literally go to the 7-11 @ midnight and buy 20 different materials there for very little money that you can extrude with this printer!!!”
Below are some of the specifications of the Rova-Paste 3D Printer:
- Build Envelope: 11.18″ x 11.88″ x 7.55″
- Printer Footprint (LxWxH): 15″ x 10.75″ x 17.5″Z
- Print Resolution: 50um
- Max number of paste extruders: 2
- Max number of filament extruders: 2
- Print materials (Paste extruders): Silicone, Plaster, Drywall compound, Nutella, Peanut Butter, icing, etc
- Print Materials (Filament extruders): PLA/ABS/Nylon/PC/POM/PET/Carbon/Wood/+More
The Kickstarter campaign, which launched just hours ago, and will run until October 7, is looking to raise $25,000 CAD, by offering a variety of rewards to backers. The first backers who would like to pre-order the Rova-Paste will be able to do so for just $899 CAD. From their, the prices go up until capping out at $999. The very first printers will begin shipping this coming March.
