A new company called Origo has been created with the aim to designed and build and 3D printer for 10 year old children. The new Origo 3D printer is a concept from Joris Peels and Artur Tchoukanov, both former i.materialise employees and would be fantastic to their concept make the jump to production.
Its an amazing idea to be able to create a 3D Printer for use in the home that will be as “easy to use as an Xbox or Wii” and will allow children, (and adults of course) to create anything they can dream up. The final items may not be as refined as some of the more professional 3D printers can produce but it will allow children to create anything they can imagine right before their eyes.
Artur original idea for the Origo 3D printer evolved when he thought:
“what would a 3D printer that would work in the home look like? What if we could make it easy enough so that kids could use it? What if it could recycle its own material? What if it was affordable and easy to use? What if it would just work, all the time. What if we could start from scratch and create a true home 3D printer, a 3D printer for kids. If someone wanted to make the “first on the desktop” for every kid in the world, what would that 3D printer look like and how would it work?
