The Blacksmith Group has this week unveiled a new rotary 3D printer they have created called the Blacksmith Genesis which offers a revolutionary rotary print bed.
As well as providing users with the ability to 3D print, scan and copy objects all in one desktop sized machine. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the Blacksmith Genesis rotary 3D printer and see it in action.
The Blacksmith Genesis combines both a 3D scanner and a 3D printer in to one device and Has been designed to provide users with a way of creating and printing 3D objects without extensive 3D printing skills or knowledge. Blacksmith its creators explain a little more :
“While most 3D printers use an inflexible Cartesian platform, the Blacksmith Genesis uses a rotating platform, similar to how a record player plays. This efficient mechanical design halves the distance that the extruder needs to move, making Blacksmith Genesis more compact than traditional 3D printer designs while still being able to print large objects. This feature also makes it perfect for integrating 3D scanning.
Blacksmith Genesis comes with an in-built camera that provides automatic error detection during printing as well as off-site monitoring via your smartphone. This means you have full control of your machine without being physically present. Should you wish to stop printing, you can do so at the click of a button—anytime, anywhere.”
The Blacksmith Genesis project is currently over on the Indiegogo crowd funding website looking to raise $75,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think the Blacksmith rotary 3D printer is something you could benefit from, visit the Indiegogo website now to make a pledge and help Blacksmith Genesis become a reality.
