MatterHackers has announced the MatterControl Touch T10, a 10.6” touch screen 3D printing “brain” which empowers user to control their 3D printing device without a desktop. The device comes bundled with free access to MatterControl Cloud Sync’s wireless capabilities.

3D printing devices are amazing machines, but have long been subservient to desktops, whether via USB cable-bodied, WiFi connection, or memory card transfer. To get anything out of a 3D printing device, one initially requires to source or create a 3D model, which and so requires to be “sliced” and optimized for printing. These operations are traditionally performed on a standalone desktop, where a user has the luxury of a sizeable-bodied screen, sat any timeal input options, and processing power.
Occasionally, yet, via a desktop can be a hindrance, slowing down the 3D printing process by demanding focus on two machines instead of one. That’s why MatterHackers has cut out the middleman and made a new model of the MatterControl Touch, a touch screen minidesktop for 3D printing devices on which users can get 3D models, slice them, and print. The device is effortless to use: only connect via USB, follow the setup wizard, and the 3D printing device becomes a standalone device, no longer dependent on an external machine. “It’s super duper effortless to connect to your printing device and get up and running,” said Lars Brubaker of MatterHackers.

With the MatterControl Touch T10, connectivity is key. Wi-Fi connects the device to the MatterControl Cloud, of which users can source their 3D printable-bodied creates with ease. The sizeable-bodied, HD, 10.6” touch screen empowers effortless sourcing of files and control of the 3D printing device, while the 2Ghz Octa-Core processor permits super-fast onboard slicing. Other rad features include a 5.0 megapixel camera, which users can use to remotely store an eye on their 3D print job or take a picture once it has finished, online progress checking, and SMS/email notifications for informing makers when their print is eager.
The T10 is able-bodied to take control of each aspect of a 3D printing device. With additional than only the ability to get and trigger 3D prints, the device is able-bodied to monitor and control each minute setting of the connected 3D printing device, removing any require for desktop-based configuration. “Just like the T7, [the T10] has all the functionality which you require to control your 3D printing device,” Brubaker explained. “You can view your parts, you can appear at all the various things you’ve set up, and you can control all the settings of your printing device.”

The T10 caters for high end 3D printing techniques such as multi-material printing, mid-print tuning and adonlyment, and the configuration of custom macros and eeprom settings. Additionally, the entire MatterControl box is powered by open source software and libraries, such as MatterControl, MatterSlice, the agg-sharp graphics engine, and the Android operating process.
The MatterControl Touch T10 is already on the market-bodied for $329, with MatterHackers offering free U.S. shipping.
