Whether you’re a small business owner or a large-scale industrial manufacturer, NexD1 is capable of printing multi-material prototypes with up to six different materials at the same time.
The uArm uFactory Test Kit is an entry-level open source robotic arm that is easy to use and affordable. With repeatability under 0.2 mm and armed with a state-of-the-art stepper motor, Swift Pro is a highly precise, yet super smooth robot.
The all-new transformable metallic 3D printer from Mooz is designed for ultimate precision at an affordable price. Whether you’re a DIY’er or professional designer, Mooz gives you the luxury of a modular printer offering CNC Carving, Laser Engraving, and 3D Printing.
The iPad mountable iSense 3D Scanner is a functional device that can be greatly enhanced by third-party 3D printing applications. With a scan volume that ranges between 8″ and 118 inches, DIYers can scan, crop, edit, enhance and export their scanned objects using the iSense companion app. But if you’re looking for a 0.1mm high-resolution scanner with geometric precision, this is not the device for you. As the saying goes, “you get what you pay for it.”
Built on an open source platform, the all-new FlashForge Creator Pro dual-extrusion 3D printer is designed specifically for DIY makers and hobbyists. Whether you want to use the flash Creator with custom firmware or use your own software, FlashForge wants you to personalize the creation process.
Manufactured to provide industrial-level precision, the MakerGear M2 is an affordable FDM printer in its 5th generation (M2e). Capable of hitting layer resolutions as low as 20 microns, this high-quality printer strikes the perfect balance between speed (200 mm/sec) and durability (stainless steel frame).
Designed for rapid prototyping or simply creating super-detailed masks, Vaquform is a revolutionary desktop vacuum thermoformer that works seamlessly with 3D printers and CNC routers. Vacuum Forming, if you’re not familiar, is a time-tested manufacturing technique that takes a heated sheet of plastic and using a powerful vacuum seal, makes detailed molds out of objects.
As a 3D printer, the Da Vinci Pro is rather impressive for its mid-range price point. With a max build size of 7.8 x 7.8 x 7.8 inches and an autoloading filament mechanism, XYZ’s printer is “perfect for designers, engineers, architects, and anyone looking for a user-friendly 3D printer that can print objects at a high volume, professional degree.”
Capable of printing items up to 125 x 125 x 125 mm in size at a resolution of 50-300 microns, the Snapmaker All-Metal 3-in-1 Printer uses Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) technology for its design creations. But this is not just an amazingly affordable 3D printer. The Snapmaker uses detachable modules to convert between a 3D printer, a CNC Carver, and a laser engraver.
3D printing has helped make some of the most disruptive breakthroughs this year possible. A man recently had a 3D printed skull implanted through surgery. A company called Potent Rope is making 3D printed marijuana a reality. It’s now also possible to 3D print in space thanks to startup Made in Space.
