GAIA has this month launched their Kickstarter campaign to fund the manufacturing of a new range of GAIA Multitool 3D printers that are available in three different sizes and have been features here on Geeky Gadgets previously.
A desktop size 3D printer has been created together with two other much larger 3D printers that are capable of creating objects with a diameter of 450mm and a height of over 1m if you opt for the largest form factor design.
The GAIA MINI3D printer is available for early bird backers priced at $2,150, watch the video below to learn more about the range and the impressive print volumes that are provided by the larger 3D printers in the range. GAIA explains a little more about their new hardware :
GAIA Multitool gives you complete freedom to create items using almost every possible manufacturing technique. It uses 10 interchangeable toolheads, which turn the machine into several different devices. GAIA Multitool uses delta kinematics and is made from high quality components used in professional industrial machines. It also uses 32-bit electronics based on Smoothieware as well as drivers dedicated for CNC milling machines.
GAIA Multitool is a one of a kind multifunctional device that combines the capabilities of a 3D printer, CNC router, laser engraver, and a number of other tools, giving the user complete freedom to create exciting projects. But what makes GAIA Multitool truly special is its ability to 3D print models from clay, porcelain and many other 100% natural materials that users can prepare themselves!
Each version is ideal for a different type of user depending on their needs and expectations. The Standard version is capable of utilizing all 10 of the various toolheads and has a large enough working area to satisfy the requirements of most typical projects. For larger projects, there is a larger version of the machine – MAXX is one of the biggest 3D printers on the market, with a maximum printing height of 175 cm. And yes, that means you’ll be able to 3D print objects 1 meter high out of ceramics!
