AIO Robotics has this week made their new Zeus 3D Printer available to pre-order for $2,499 offering users a build area of 8 x 6 x 5.7 inches in size. The Zeus 3D Printer originally launched over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website raising over $100,000.
The Zeus 3D Printer is unique in that it allows users to scan and copy objects and even transmit them over the Internet to other printers allowing them to then print the 3D scan.
The technology used in the Zeus 3D Printer uses a standard plastic filament system that can print at 80 microns and scan at 125 microns. Its creators explain a little more:
“Our design philosophy is to create a product that can be beautifully displayed and used in any environment. The ZEUS frame is made from an aluminum structure, powder-coated in a moonstone white, with black anodized side panels. The 7-inch touchscreen gives the machine a welcoming “consumer ready” look.
Instead of plastic or wood, all linear components are made by CNC-machined aluminum (xyz-carrier, turntable) and the external metal enclosure ensures an extremely rigid body. The structure of the machine dramatically increases the quality of the prints, preventing deformation and heat soaking: The results are resilient!”
The new Zeus 3D Printer is gearing up to start shipping during the summer months of this year and is now available to preorder directly from the AIO Robotics website for $2,499. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the Zeus 3D printer project and see it in action.
