Smartphone 3D printer visits Kickstarter

25.03.2016 | Techxplore | www.techxplore.com

A smartphone 3D printer? That idea may take some getting used to. Could it be possible that everyone can start printing 3D objects directly from their phone? OLO 3D in San Francisco has developed the idea to the max.

In fact, OLO would like to think they have re-invented how a 3d printer can work. They went live on Kickstarter recently. Enthusiasts say it is a game-changing piece of technology, and it is going for under $100, at $99, because, said the team, they want everyone to have one.

Smartphone 3D printer

No, you do not fill your phone with resin; they are talking about a smartphone-powered 3D printer. Half the hardware is already in your palm or pocket. The other half, the printer, weighs less than a pound. It is a simple design, made of only seven plastic parts (two of which are identical), one chip, and one motor. It uses light from the screen of your phone to harden the liquid resin, layer by layer. The app is available for iOS, Android and Windows phones.

How OLO works: You pick a design from OLO's library or use 3D scanning to make your own or use designs from the Web. Select the object, pour in the resin and OLO does the rest. You rinse the object under warm water.
