ZEUS, The World’s First ALL-IN-ONE 3D Printer, 3D Copier, 3D Fax Machine Now Available for $2,499
3D printing has made tremendous strides over the past few years. This year alone, we have seen the prices of 3D printers drop significantly. 3D scanning is still in its infancy, but there have been several very capable 3D scanners released in the past couple of years as well. When you consider your desktop 2-dimensional printer, you probably have one that is an “All-in-one” piece of hardware. This means that it can print, scan, copy, and fax documents at the touch of a button.
Now, the same is true for 3D printing. AIO Robotics has begun taking pre-orders for their ZEUS All-In-One 3D Printer. The ZEUS 3D printer is capable of printing 3D objects, scanning 3D objects, copying 3D objects, as well as faxing objects directly to other 3D printers. This means that someone in the United States could scan an item on his ZEUS, and send it to another printer in Japan. That printer in Japan would proceed to print out the object, just like a traditional fax machine would do with a document.
“We’re aiming to revolutionize the 3D printing industry and allowing everyone to utilize 3D printing technology, explained Co-founder and CEO of AIO Robotics, Jens Windau. “We didn’t just take a few steps forward in 3D printing technology; we made signiﬁcant leaps forward towards a smart, easy to use, complete 3D copying machine. This sales launch is a long-awaited moment. We hope to have them in thousands of American schools, design studios and households by the end of the year.”
For those of you that follow Kickstarter campaigns, AIO Robotics ran a successful campaign to raise $111,111.00 last September/October for the ZEUS. Now they are taking pre-orders for their all-in-one 3D printer, that they say will ship sometime this summer.
The ZEUS 3D printer will be shipped fully assembled and ready to go. It has a resolution of 80 microns when printing and 125 microns when scanning. It features a scan volume of 9 inches (diameter) X 5 inches (height), and a print volume of 8 X 6 X 5.7 inches. It also has other nice features such as auto-calibration, meshing, auto-leveling, and slicing, which is powered by a 1.7 GHz high-speed processor.
Like your 2-dimensional desktop all-in-one printers, the ZEUS also includes a built-in 7-inch color display, with an incredibly easy to operate user interface. It also features both local and online storage of 3D designs.
The ZEUS is available for only $2,499, which is seemingly a great price for an all-in-one device. Customers can also purchase their filament in a variety of colors for $39 per roll. Also available are extra extruders ($149), and extra glass tables ($69).
What do you think? Is this worth buying for $2,499? Discuss in the ZEUS All-In-One discussion thread on 3DPB.com.
