Anyone in the market for a personal 3D printer may be interested in Leaf, a new 3D printer which has launched via Kickstarter this week to raise the required €150,000 needed to make the jump from concept into production. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the 3D printer its unique design and features.
Leaf is available to back with early bird pledges available from €499 or roughly £438 with worldwide delivery expected to take place during November 2019. “An enclosed but not fully covered case designed to ensure a prefect printing experience with filaments that require a constant temperature without any drop during the printing process; all this avoiding any compromise thanks to the transparent panel situated on each face of the case that gives you the possibility to watch the shape status and prevent the various risks of an open printer.”
“At the same time if you need an open printer for filaments that require it or just want to take a look inside, then you can take off the acrylic door thanks to a special system of magnetic hinges especially designed for Leaf-a. Many 3d printers are full of compromises: some of them are huge with a consistent print area but impossible to put on a normal desk, with smallest printers you can create objects that are smaller than the actual printer, with serious limits to what you can invent.”
“With Leaf-a we made the first all in one 3D printer on the market, something different and innovative, that allow the user to print objects of almost 30cm in height and 20 in width, maintaining clean your desk thanks to an inner filament storage system inside which you can insert any standard size filament roll just within the printer and save more space on your desk. The only external device that Leaf-a requires to function it’s a power cord, but we are working on it!”
