Quick update

Hi Guys,

It has been a while since my last update, my apologies for that.... I have been quite busy...

Pedro is now leading the project and we have everything ready for the kit, looks impressive. I will post the details this week.

There are many comments and messages of people asking for contact details, so I decided to put our contact here in the blog. If you wish to talk to us please send an email to




  1. CAN'T WAIT!!!!! It's been too long :D

  2. Can't wait to hear more! Thanks for doing this!

  3. Awesome! I'm looking forward to hearing more!

  4. Woohoo! I was afraid 3D Systems had you "silenced" or something. Any ETA for when kits can be purchased?

  5. Interrested n a kit here too.. Or just a BOM and build plan!!!!:-)

  6. \o/ !!!

    Thanks a lot for all your work ! they so close to be mine :D

  7. What wavelength and wattage is the laser?? Is it a diode?

  8. This kit is the first 3D kit I'm actually thinking of buying, instead of just be amazed by the concept :) Can't wait!

  9. really interested in this. have you tried to cast any of the jewelry you prototyped. good to see results of that like what was the burnout like of the material and how did the castings turn out i would be interested to know.

  10. Hi Junior, hi Pedro,

    I can't wait. I am looking every day several times for your details, coming "last week".
    How long takes a week in Singapore? :-)

    Please give as some stuff...

    Greets and gratulation for this great project!!


  11. Any idea as to the cost of consumables on this long awaited device Junior. Seems this is always a matter of great consideration. Also curious about overall cost and release date as well. Big deciding factors for me...

  12. Can't wait, I've been waiting for a kit release for this machine for a long time. Good thing, I put off having some SLA parts made, this will probably be comparable in cost and I'd much rather have a machine that can make high resolution parts than just buying some high resolution parts.

    Thanks for your efforts!


  13. At last!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait the moment mhen i'll have the kit in my hands!!!

  14. Hi there, Oh! so good to see that the project is alive!! So long without news!

  15. I have been watching this blog on and off for awhile. Was starting to worry that the kits were not going to happen. I, too, have been looking at 3D printers for a future buy. The UV printers are impressive for the resolution and less need of support structures.

  16. I'm interested in this kit, can't wait!

  17. OMG! Any details on the price and availability ??

  18. Good job man !

    We are impatient, can you give the price and the dalay for sell ?

    thank you

    ps: the weeks are very long ;-)

  19. Remember Junior,
    I see that you have the dream to bring a 3D printer in every home.
    So you MUST make a low price.
    If you mantain this point, the world is your.

  20. Great work! I'll get onto my reprap project and with any luck by the time I get around to finishing that I'll have a new toy to build!

    Keep us posted, any mundane ramblings will do... Just so we know we're loved ;)

  21. Mr. Veloso,

    I heard about this project last spring, and am really excited to see the next
    update! When i first saw a post on MAKE last year I thought it was a spectacular
    idea! As a glass worker this has limitless potential for casting, and that's
    just one of the many uses I could put this thing to. Can't wait!! to sell a kidney... ha!

  22. God damn it. How looooong i must wait ?!

    I wan't to buy it NOW !! :D

  23. Nice to read again your words...
    Keep up your amazing project. When the global financial crisis defeat the "Golia" companies, it's time for the smaller (but smarter) little ideas to came true!
    If you keep the printer affordable for everyone, I'll make a real technology revolution.
    Impatient to see more,

  24. can you sell the software or does it also have to go with the fund raiser?

  25. Depending on pricing, I believe your fund raising should be very good with all the people interested in your project.

    If you can keep up with even some small posts, that would be great.

  26. I am ready to buy a kit also. When do you think they will be available and what will be the cost. Been waiting for a long time for this. Thank you for all your hard work and persistance. - Dale

  27. When you put together your FAQ for the fun raiser project, please be sure to include this important information:
    - Noise level of the machine while running.
    - Toxicity information including handling and fumes.
    - If running in a small home apartment, is it safe and quiet?
    - material costs - example costs of parts like your skull print.
    - material availability - now and into the future.
    - machine maintenance needs.
    - support structures - details on automatic creation and removal in small areas.
    - part clean up - how much is necessary?

    Thanks for your hard work!!

  28. I would put this project on kickstarter... Please keep us updated it has been more then a week now...

  29. Hello Junior

    Why do you write details come in a week an then comes nothing?
    Please give us details if you have, not if you have not!
    So I don't need to look after news every day ;-)

    Sorry but I too can't wait till this great printer will be available to buy!


  30. Wow, this has got to be the longest week of my life!!! 22 days long so far;). But seriously I am looking forward to the release of your 3D printer. Hope to see it soon. -Daniel

  31. This is a Awesome Project ,I would like most really like one too.
    Please do not mind the lack of patients most of us have.
    When you keep talking about a name replacement for this I get to thinking
    1 The HD3DP simply use the acronym
    2 The HD3 or shorten it to make it simple
    3 Idea to Reality but if you use a long name most people will acro it!

    I really like the HD3 its simple and works in most languages

    I would like to build a larger Version of this for bigger builds i wonder how big it can be made?

    To Everyone else demanding it ,,,Chill out the guys here are trying to give you a great device not a mediocre one

  32. wow i stopped coming here because i thought this project was abandoned, this is great news!

  33. Hi, Jr
    I'm looking for the best 3D printer I can afford.
    Can you give us any idea of the price range (1k - 2k), (2k-5k), etc?

    Keep up the amazing work.

  34. necesito que por favor me des un mail para hacerte varias preguntas acerca de la maquina ya que estoy muy interesado en comprar una de estas, mi email es

  35. I assume that this design was so great that the inventor was assassinated by big corporates for threatening their capitalistic ways... that is the only possible explanation for the lack of updates.

  36. is your answer and your one stop shop for cheap flyer printing needs. We offer both single and double sided flyer printing solutions on a plethora of paper size and quality options.

  37. ohh, so now it is 6 month and we are still waiting for a price ;-) so we can spend the money! Cheers Richard

  38. Has this project been abandoned ???

  39. is there any progress on this project? I can't see any recent activity and the Formlabs machine is out soon......

  40. I would like to know how strong the pieces are that you are printing? I am also really interested!

  41. Printer toner cartridges stores for all type of ink cartridges and toner refill services. All brand printer accessories store.

  42. I can't even believe my eyes! A 3D printer?? That is so crazy but way tight! I really want one and I was wondering if you know a great printing place in Charlotte? If so, let me know. Thanks!

  43. While a quick printing business for sale looks particularly appealing if it incorporates other enterprises like scanning and large format services, those operations don't always generate adequate returns to justify their equipment and employee costs. The seller should be asked to separate, from company's totals, the income and expenses associated with each "profit" center.

    Quick Printing Magazine

  44. The demand for printed items is vast. Products range office stationeries like letterheads, envelopes, forms and applications, business and personal cards; there are printed items for promotional and advertisement requirements like posters, banners, leaflets, flyers. Brochures and catalogues are also specialized form of printed items that need to be designed and arranged with quality paper as well.

    When the cops came to arrest you for doing this project, stupidly thinking it was a meth lab, you should have asked them to give you FIVE MINUTES to POST US a GOODBYE - or perhaps a plea to post bail for you. FIVE MINUTES - that's all it would have taken to tell us all that our hopes should no longer hang on your pipe dream.

    Oh well - fare thee well with whatever it was that distracted you from what once seemed to be important.


  46. I am glad to find such a great effort in showing info on printing in Australia.. Thanks for the post!!


About the Project

I have been dreaming about having a 3D Printer at home for many years, but the ones with good quality are not affordable and the low costs just deliver poor quality. Sounds crazy but I decided to build a high resolution 3D Printer by myself at home (people actually said that I was crazy and this was impossible). The funny thing I never saw this type of machines in real life, and still haven’t seen one besides the one I built.

Now that I succeed building the first prototype, the target is to bring this low cost 3D Printer to every home, so we are developing the first affordable one with high resolution.

I hope you enjoy our blog, follow us and you can have this printer in your home soon.
