We have featured many different 3D printers here on Geeky Gadgets that are capable of printing using a plastic filament which is supplied on a roll. However this week Sculptify has unveiled a new pellet 3D printer they have created called the David 3D printer that uses plastic pellets which are melted within the machine to print 3D models.
The unique David 3D Printer uses a new technology developed by Sculptify called Fused Layer Extrusion (FLEX). Check out the videos after the jump to learn more about this unique pellet 3D printer.
Which has been designed to offer users the ability to create objects from a wide range of pelletised materials, with each one offering unique properties. Slade Simpson, CEO and Co-founder of Sculptify explains :
“We have gone as far as we can with our personal savings and loans from family members — it’s time for us to get out of our basements and get this product into the community’s hands.”-“their support and input will expedite the material optimization process, and help make David the most capable 3D printer possible”.
David is constructed using a durable anodised aluminium casing, together with precision components with high quality, high tolerance parts allows David to print smoothly, quietly, and accurately. The new Sculptify David 3D printer will be launching on the Kickstarter crowd funding website next month, looking to raise enough funds to make the jump into production. As soon as the Kickstarter campaign launches we will let you know.
