Lotmaxx launches new SC-10 Shark on Kickstarter

Imagine a desktop 3D printer that can print faster than average, featuring multiple functions such as auto leveling, laser engraving and bicolor printing using simple add-ons. Plus build quality with premium materials, sleek and ergonomic design.

Now stop imagining. LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK is a reality.  

LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK is our latest and first-ever crowdfunded desktop 3D printer and we chose to launch on Kickstarter for a reason. Kickstarter is always the base of unlimited creativity. Helping to bring the creative projects to life, Kickstarter would be the proven bridge between LOTMAXX and the 3D printing community by bringing us together.

We believe that 3D printing has unlimited potential, and we’re only just at the beginning of this emerging industry. 3D printing technology is penetrating widely and deeply across industrial, makers and consumer sectors. It’s by launching on Kickstarter and connecting LOTMAXX with backers, getting feedback and conducting discussion that we can make further progress on development of 3D printing.

We’re just getting started and your opinions matter to us. 

Establishing ourselves in 2018, LOTMAXX is a cutting-edge technology company specializing in 3D printing. Gathered with more than 100 professionals, experienced developers and engineers from 3D printing, tablet computer and machine manufacturing industries, we’ve harnessed the great capability of design, research and production of 3D printing.

We want to vitalize the industry with our innovation. By breaking further ground in 3D printing technology, we managed to bring LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK to Kickstarter. It’s printing faster, it’s more than the average desktop 3D printer.

It’s beyond your imagination.

Packing the Aeolus Heat Dissipation system (AHDS) and S Move System (SMS), LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK has effectively boosted the print speed and successfully saved up to 30% average print time*.

S Move System

LOTMAXX SC-10 stays cool while printing, thanks to the unique and signature design of its modular nozzles.  The Aeolus Heat Dissipation system (AHDS) is a highly efficient  dissipation system with its uniquely developed four-fan design. This cools the nozzle from all angles, increasing the efficiency of heat dissipation by 42%*(measured in LOTMAXX lab) without compromising sprinting quality and print speed. LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK has three speed modes available: normal, middle, and fast speed, to match your preference and need. Combining the high-speed motor, LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK is a powerhouse that guarantees unparalleled speed as well as the stability.

Auto leveling, laser engraving and bicolor printing, your call. LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK is the whole package. No need to recode and no further adjustment is required, plug and play, it’s just that easy!  

There are 2 colors of SC-10 Shark(Deep Purple/Space Gray)

LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK comes with optional automatic bed leveling feature. The ultra-precise technology allows for 0.1mm accuracy. While the unleveled bed might cause nozzle clogging, scratch marks and poor adhesion, the auto leveling is one of the most important benefits that LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK can offer to the quality of your prints. Just tap the touch screen to activate the auto leveling interface, the inductive sensor will probe the heated bed. It precisely measures the print surface’s tilt, freeing you from the time-consuming and tricky manual process. Regardless of whether you are a newcomer or a skilled maker, you can enjoy a hassle-free auto leveling with SHARK!

Note: LOTMAXX procures 3D touch & BL touch from suppliers.

The 3D Touch

LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK supports an optional 1.6 W laser engraving and allows you to engrave with a wide variety of materials like wood, plastic, leather, PVC, paper and resin. The interchangeable module is extremely easy to apply on. Plug and engrave, simply attach the laser engraver module next to the printhead and you’re ready to witness creativity turning into reality.  

Ever so often, it’s color making the artwork unique and special. While most of the 3D printers come with just one nozzle, LOTMAXX SC-10 SHARK offers optional dual color print head tier. Besides the basic option, you may choose a different package that comes with two extruders and one nozzle. Expand the possibility and upgrade your artwork, why not?

We have one of their original SC-10 printers and are very impressed with it. We are backers of the new SC-10 Shark on kickstarter. We are very eager to receive the new printer and put it through its’ paces.

Trinus3d Exciting NEW Crowdfunded 3D Printer!

Professional 3D printing now costs hundreds instead of thousands Starting March 30, Trinus will be available on Kickstarter for just $299.

SAN FRANCISCO, California (March 25, 2016) — Trinus is the first truly affordable 3D printer for everyday professional use. Currently, desktop 3D printers fall roughly into two camps. For under $500, you can buy a 3D printer suited for fun experimentation — one that is more toy than work machine. For $2000 or more, you can buy a printer that is suited for more serious prototyping and fabrication. If you want high-quality printing but are on a tight budget, you are better off getting your prints from a third party. Industrial designer Bojan Smiljanic fell into this camp. As a creator of consumer products, he used to send all of his prototype designs to third-party 3D printers such as Shapeways. He did not want The Trinus 3D Printer/Laser Engraver is the world’s first professional-grade 3D printer made from all metal parts for under $500 to spend thousands of dollars for a personal machine that might break down, fulfill only some of his needs, or require an upgrade after just a few years. However, relying on third-party printers had its challenges too. Once, Smiljanic ordered two prints of a prototype for $100. He waited 20 days for the prototypes to arrive, only to find that they were printed with plastic that was too stiff. This type of experience was not uncommon. Last year, Smiljanic joined Kodama, Inc., a small San Francisco-based startup looking to build a high-quality 3D printer that met the needs of professionals and hobbyists alike. They came up with Trinus, a fast, reliable, high-resolution 3D printer that can be transformed into a laser engraver within 60 seconds.


 

Unlike most other 3D printers under $500, Trinus does not contain any cheap plastic parts — it is made entirely of premium metal. “I wanted to make a machine that I would use as a product designer,” says Smiljanic. “With its speed, precision, and versatility, Trinus fits the bill. The prototype printer in my office has been running 24/7 since November, with no technical failures yet.” Starting March 30, Trinus will be available on Kickstarter for $299. The first 100 backers will get a Super Early Bird price of $199. Trinus can be converted from a 3D printer to a laser engraver in 60 seconds. Built to last Constructed entirely out of high-end aluminum and steel, Trinus is the world’s only all-metal 3D printer under $500. More than a printer Trinus has a “transformer” design: Its 3D printing head can be taken off and exchanged with a laser engraver. By the end of 2016, we aim to launch a third head — which is why we named our product Trinus, the Latin word for “triple.” We are currently working on designs for a dual extruder (for mixing multiple filaments), a paste extruder (for printing with viscous substances such as chocolate), and a CNC router (for cutting wood and metal). No filament restrictions In addition to traditional PLA filament, Trinus can print with exotic materials, such as flexible, polycarbonate, wood, and aluminum filaments. Through our Kickstarter we are providing premium Polymaker filament at an exclusive discount. Stability and precision To make Trinus we scaled down the mechanics of industrial-grade machines. Built with a single-axis slider and robust internal components, Trinus does not require constant recalibration. Its parts stay in place. High print quality Trinus maintains quality printing up to print speeds of 70 mm/sec but is capable of running at a maximum speed of 150 mm/sec. With a minimum layer height of 50 microns, its prints come out clean and smooth. Hassle-free assembly Since Trinus has a simple modular design and only 11 units, someone with no technical experience can put it together in 30 minutes. Other, more expensive printers can have hundreds of pieces and require a full day to assemble. Intuitive software Trinus comes with its own proprietary Pango software, which includes many built-in features and works twice as fast as other slicers. However, you’re not tied to Pango — Trinus is compatible with any other software package or gCode. Enclosure and HBP We offer many options to ensure you can optimize Trinus to your needs, including an enclosure case and a heated bed platform that lets you print ABS and PC. To deliver you the best product, we teamed up with three partners • Flextronics, one of the biggest names in the world for electronics and manufacturing • Polymaker, one of the best and most innovative filament suppliers on the market • Panowin, a 3D printing company with 3+ years of experience in the industry and more than 20 patents filled Tech specs • Print volume: 120mm x 125mm x 125mm • Print speed: up to 70 mm/sec | Moving speed: up to 150 mm/sec • Minimum layer height: 0.05mm (50 microns) • Print material: 1.75mm PLA, ABS, PC, flex, wood, aluminum • OS supported: Windows, Mac • Connectivity: USB, SD Card (autoprint) • Power consumption: 60W • Weight: 9.8kg About Kodama, Inc. Kodama is a small San Francisco-based team of entrepreneurs, designers, and engineers working on 3D printing technology. We created the Trinus 3D Printer to bring high-quality and affordable 3D printing to every creative soul.
