Unbelievable!!! Thanks for all emails!!!

Hi Guys,



We are extremely excited with the feedback and emails we have received!!!



In less than 24 hours we received over 150 emails requesting to enter in the pre-order list, some people for basic kit and most for the full kit!! We are very happy with the success!!!



Because of that we decided to start the Indiegogo campaign tomorrow (April 2nd) as pre-order of the kits.



We received many questions and they will be all in our FAQ.



We are planning to have the following perks for our campaign:

Important: All prices below are just for Indiegogo.

E-mail PDF (59 USD):
One PDF document that will be delivered by email with the printer high level design (no measures included in the drawings), pictures, design suggestions, tips, some secrets.
This document brings all information for a hobbyist to design and develop his own printer.

The person should have some strong mechanical and electronic skills to be able to build the machine.

CD with complete design (159 USD - including shipping):
A CD with detailed printer design, including all measures, detailed pictures, BOM, videos how to assemble, manual, one resin formula and tips.

This CD contains all detailed information for a hobbyist to build our printer. The person should have some mechanical and electronic skills to be able to build the machine.

Software + Complete CD (399 USD - including shipping):
The CD above + full license of our software (features of the software will be in the FAQ)
Software price after Indiegogo: (549 USD)

Basic Kit I (Software + Controler board + Complete CD) (599 USD - shipping not included):
All items above + 1 controller board (able to control the entire printer).
(This basic kit does not include motors or linear guides or projector)
Price After Indiegogo: (849 USD)

Basic Kit II (Basic Kit I + few mechanical parts) (1999 USD - shipping not included):
This kit will have the Basic Kit I + the following parts:
1) All necessary motors for the printer
2) The linear actuators
3) Power supply for the controller board and motors
4) Building tray
5) Building head (area that the object is build)
With this kit you will have almost everything you need to speed up the process of building our printer.
(This basic kit does not include projector, machine main structure, as well some mechanical parts)
Price After Indiegogo: (2699 USD)

Full Kit (everything you need + 1KG of resin!!) - (3999 USD - shipping not included):
This kit will include everything, from projector to bolts and nuts. You will need just few hours to assemble and run you new 3D Printer. This kit also comes with 1KG of resin, which is enough to print a lot!!!
Price After Indiegogo: (to be defined)
Unfortunately we will be able to deliver only 250 full kits this year for this Indiegogo campaign, because of production limitation and we will probably just take new orders next year once we deliver all Indiegogo perks.

Additionally the campaign will last just for 2 months and the order will follow the purchase order at Indiegogo.

I am sure you will have great time with this machine as much we have been working on it.



BTW, this is not 1st April joke... :-)



Cheers,

  3. This is fantastic! Congratulations.

    Please include the cost of the material and availability -- what is the cost per cubic cm or inch, as I think this will be the determining factor for many, including myself.

    Good luck,
    -Brian

  4. I have a few questions:

    -On purchases of the full kit, will there be any level of support offered?
    -Is orange the only color that can be printed?
    -Can the material be painted?

  5. What is the maximum build size for this product? I see on your video (Youtube) When printing there is a min-max-delta block of info for the part being printed (Alienhead) but when the size is reduced to 1/2 then the numbers in the max field go down as well.

    Also it appears that the software was written for the Macintosh platform based on the interface in the same video. Is this correct?

  6. Hello Junior'm from Brazil and I'm interested in buying the plans to make a printer as I do, what are the contact details and payment?

    thank you

  7. This is great news. What kind of timeframes are you expecting for delivery? You should figure out a way to quantify wait times, etc. This is a lot of money to spend with the fear of someone not delivering...

    You guys have done tremendous work here and I believe, if this machine turns out to be fairly reliable, that you may be about to turn the hobby and small shop realm of 3D printing on it's head.

    One thing that would be nice is a list of all final specs of the machine... Build size in the x,y and maximum z height, etc and so on...

    Also, many more pics of parts you are printing... I'm especially interested in figure sculpts and jewelry detail.

    Could you also comment on the durability and such of your machine so far? Any major part replacements, maintenance issues, etc?

    I can't tell you how excited I am over this. I really hope the turn around time is fast. It's a big investment, but totally worth it.

    Cheers for all the hard work finally paying off!

  9. I've been waiting for this day! Can't wait to order tomorrow!

    I am curious if there are resin formulas that would be useful for lost investment casting of metal. Will you have different resin formulas in the packages?

  12. I see on your FAQ that you are still working on developing a build material for lost wax casting. I hope to see a successful update on that soon. Whether or not I can burn out the material for jewelry casting makes or breaks the deal for me.
    Congratulations on your success thus far!

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.
