A new personal fabrication machine called the LumiPocket LT, has been launched over on Kickstarter this week, that has been created by Lumi Industries.
The LumiPocket LTHas been designed to provide users with a high quality resin-based 3D printer a PCB etching machine and a laser engraver all-in-one compact and affordable device.
LumiPocket LT is the first multi-purpose, SCARA-based, Light curing 3D Printer. It is an affordable, standalone, compact tool that can take your Maker projects to a new level! It is more than “just” a high quality, resin based 3D Printer: it is also a fast PCB etching machine, and a Laser engaver that can work with many different materials!
The SCARA acronym stands for Selective Compliance Articulated Robot Arm. Its main advantage is the jointed two-link arm; this feature allows the arm to extend into confined areas and then retract or “fold up” out of the way. We modified this design so it can cover all the printing area with the smallest possible footprint. This system allows also good quality and speed; normally its main drawback is that controlling this arm involves inverse kinematics for linear interpolated moves. However, the software we designed takes care of all this and is completely transparent to the user!
