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.
Considered the “world’s first professional-grade 3D printing pen,” 3Doodler wants to entice creative professionals (architects, engineers, designers, artists, etc.) to turn their vision into reality using their revolutionary prototyping and tactile design tool.
