Makerbot’s former COO Samuel Cervantes has started his own business creating a sub $500 3D printer, with the aim to bring the new printing technology within reach of the masses.
The latest Solidoodle 3D printer which he has created, is capable of printing plastic pieces up to 6 x 6 x 6 inches in size, and requires only a power source and computer connected to start creating your designs. Watch the video after the jump to see it in action.
“Aside from being fully assembled, what makes Solidoodle great? The Solidoodle 2nd Generation 3D Printer is designed by aerospace engineers to be extremely strong and precise at the same time. The all-steel frame is so strong, in fact, that a 200lb man can literally stand on top of the machine while it’s printing. The Solidoodle’s moving parts are designed so that they will move smoothly and never bind.”
The Solidoodle 3D printer is now in its second generation and has been designed to portable and easy to use. The Solidoodle is noe available to pre-order in two versions either fully enclosed in a case or without.
