We are intrigued by this new Polar Coordinate based 3d printer:
According to Sculpto:
About this project
3D printers are one of the coolest and most efficient ways for you to make your ideas go from the drawing board and into real life.
Two years ago we launched a new type of 3D printer on Kickstarter. We wanted to make the amazing world of 3D printing available to everyone – not just engineers and tech-savvy people. We believe everyone should be able to bring their ideas to life. We started delivering that dream a year ago and opened a world of 3D printing for regular people and schools all over Denmark. Since then we have refined our production and software while developing Sculpto+
The result is a small 3D printer with one of the biggest print areas seen on a plug’n’play printer. We have maximized printing performance while eliminating the noise and inconveniences of 3D printing – we have made the perfect desktop 3D printer. And the best part: Everyone can use it!
Sculpto+ is a small 3D printer. It only weighs 2.7 KG and is about the size of your household coffeemaker, but has a printing volume of 5 liters! You can print objects at the size of a football (Soccer)! If you compare the build volume of Sculpto+ to other consumer printers in the same category and price range you will discover the print volume of Sculpto+ is up to 5 times bigger.
Thanks to the compact design and the built-in handle the printer can easily be moved from room to room or house to house without any trouble.
We would love to get one to test, review and help education too. It looks quite nice, easy to use and well designed.
It has integration with Thingiverse:
When you have a 3D printer you also need some nice things to print. That’s why you can browse between a selection of cool models that can be printed directly from the Sculpto App to your Sculpto+ 3D printer. It’s easy and convenient. You can download the app on Google Play and App Store or you can access the printer directly from your browser via our web app. We are currently in the process of developing the app into a new and improved version where our upcoming ‘model engine’ will collect quality content from Thingiverse and present it to you in a even more user-friendly way.
You can look forward to receiving a product that keeps getting better as we push new updates with cool features and improvements.
We are huge fans of 3d printing, and stem education, and find that this printer seems it would be great for educational purposes!
