Maker, developers and hobbyists that are in the market for an open source laser cutter may be interested in a new open design created by Hubble.
The Hubble laser cutter has been created to provide an affordable system that combines replicable hardware and community driven firmware and software.
“With Hubble being designed completely around off-the-shelf parts, we reduce a lot of troubles geared towards products with proprietary designs. There are countless possible vendors for bulk orders and we will vet them each properly to assure we get the highest quality and most reliable parts.
Our biggest risk would come from a surge of frame requests. Since 3D printing is only so fast, we can resolve high demands by ramping up our printer army or if certain stretch goals are made, we could switch over to injection molding.”
The Hubble project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $10,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
So if you think the Hubble laser cutter is something your projects could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help Hubble become a reality.
