3D Pandora 1.0: A Kickstarter Success

by • July 3, 2016 • No Comments

After launching their project on September 10th, 2014, Global Trend Technology Co., Ltd launched a Kickstarter Campaign to raise funds for their 3D Pandora 1.0, a full colour 3D printing device which relies on powder innovation. This project was a excellent good results, raising $156,885 of 65 backers, and the printing devices started shipping in March 2016.

Stereolithography is known to be one of the additional expensive processes of 3D printing, especially when the printing device has the skill to print in full colour. This form of 3D printing usually relies on a laser or UV light which melts a layer of powdered print medium or cures it preceding another layer powder is introduced and melted on top.

Instead of a laser or UV light, the 3D Pandora 1.0 uses a binding agent between the layers of plastic, reminiscent of the D-shape method. The printing device in addition has 4608 jets with provide both Basic K and Full CMY for coloring models after they are printed. After the models are colored, the models require to be dipped into a curing agent which can be purchased along with all other required materials.

This printing device has a variety of applications too, including:

  • Creative – for fun leisure products or artistic pieces
  • Industry – various types of powder can be utilized, such as metal based ones
  • Medicine – there is a possibility of via print mediums such as bone powders and biomaterial
  • Food – via edible print mediums
  • Technology – print parts for electronics projects
  • Building – print scaled models

The team behind the 3D Pandora 1.0 had the intention of creating a printing device which cuts the cost of printing high more detail, full color models. Stereolithographic printing devices usually have a quite high set up cost, and the print cost of models is in addition quite high. But, Global Trend Technology Co., Ltd has managed to cut these costs down to a fraction of what they were.
