Fuel3D Scanner To Announce Additional Funding At 3D Print Show in NYC

Share this Article

Last September, a company popped up out of the woodwork with the help of crowdfunding’s leading platform, Kickstarter.com. Fuel3D emerged on the scene and more than quadrupled their $75,000 funding goal, bringing in a total of $325,000.

fuel1Fuel3D is a handheld 3D scanner which sells for under $1000. At the time of their Kickstarter campaign, this was one tenth the price of any industry competitor, according to the company. The founders, Prof. Ron Daniel and James Patterson, filed their first patents for the device way back in 2005, years before they came to Kickstarter seeking funding.

The device allows anyone to quickly scan an object in order to create a 3D model. That model can then either be sent to a 3D printer, manipulated, or used within a 3D game or video.

“Fuel3D is the world’s first 3D scanner to combine pre-calibrated stereo cameras with photometric imaging to capture and process files in seconds,” according to the Kickstarter campaign page.

The company is getting set to ship its first units to early backers sometime in April. Once the full production process begins, additional funds will be needed. The Kickstarter project should cover the initial production run, but the company is seeking to expand their market past Kickstater. To do this they will need further funding. According to the CEO of Fuel 3D Technologies, Stuart Mead, they will be announcing that additional funding sometime during the 3D Print Show in NYC this week. Fuel 3D will have a booth at the show, allowing those interested to get 3D scanned themselves. Participants will then be given a url to download the 3D model, which they can use however they’d like. The Show runs from Wednesday, Feb. 12th to Saturday, Feb 15th at the Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 West 18th Street New York, NY.
