Open Hardware High Resolution 3D Printer



 Here is a great looking Open Hardware High Resolution 3D Printer. I think we will see a lot more 3D printers this year! The more the merrier since I would love one but I currently can’t justify the cost. With this kickstarter you could have one of these for under $2500. You can read more about it on the project site.

“Specifications

What are the dimensions and resolution of the build volume?

Build volume varies, depending on resolution.

Resolutions in the x/y plane (horizontal) of 50 to 100 microns are possible by adjustment of the projector’s position and focus.

Resolutions in the z (vertical) build axis from 100 to less than 10 microns are possible via software selection.  Using higher resolutions in the z-axis may result in slower build rates.  We suggest using the same z axis resolution as the x/y plane.

At the 100 micron x/y pixels setting, the build area is 102.4 mm (4.03?) x 76.8 mm (3.02?) x 203.2 mm (8.0?).

At the 50 micron x/y pixels setting, the build area is 51.2 mm (2.02?) x 38.4 mm (1.52?) x 203.2 mm (8.0?).

100 microns = 0.1 mm = 0.00394?

What about software?

B9Creator will ship with a basic software suite that allows you to import a model stored in standard .stl format. This software will allow you to slice the model and manually position simple supports, if needed. The software will also control the actual print process. The software will be available for current Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems.

Developers should note that our printer has an open API, anyone interested in writing or modifying their software to work with our printer is welcome to do so! Please contact us to learn more.”
