No More Print Shifting and More!

by • July 17, 2016 • No Comments

Meet the LOCOOP Y, one of the newest in computer printing devices to come out of Seoul, Korea.

The printing device boasts a hefty list of astounding showcases, that include the ability to eliminate one of the most frustrating parts of 3D printing – Print shift.

The team at Locoop had a particular problem with the lack of precision that most smaller in size printing devices have, so they looked to high -precision industrial printing devices for inspiration. One of the sizeablest differences when it comes to printing devices with high amounts of precision, is that those that use innovation inspired by the delta robot, that uses 3 operated arms, tend to do advantageous than those that rely on carrier rails.

Printers with these ‘arms’ have existed preceding, yet LOCOOP are doing their most to bring this innovation to the weight market.

In fact, these arms have in addition created it simpler to remove and alter the print head itself, as the the arms just click in place.


The printing device actually has up to 50 micron accuracy, that does not alter over time either, This is for the reason there are no carrier rails to get worn or lose tension. Print for 48 hours straight, and there shouldn’t be a difference in print high end.

Now, layer shift. The bummer of 3D printing. The one thing that manufactures your awe-inspiring version like its suffering horridly with a slipped disk. Sadly, this takes place when cartesian and linear delta printing devices lose tension on their rails, that ends up with things not really lining up properly.

According to LOCOOP, layer shifts tend to take place around three-quarters through a sizeable print, that by Murphy’s Law, can go wrong when you are on a tight deadline. Thankfully, with the elimination of rails, LOCOOP has in addition managed to eliminate this problem.

The printing device in addition showcases a touch screen, that allows for the user to:

  • Select items to print of the SD card
  • Run the cleaning cycle
  • Calibrate the printing device
  • Level the print bed


The door on the LOCOOP Y is in addition an significant showcase of the printing devices create, as t helps maintain a constant temperature around the print bed. When the printing area is not kept at the right temperature, the print job is far additional most likely to warp when rading. Keeping the printing area as a sealed, temperature-controlled space allows for the printing device to store the print job at the right temperature, that vastly improves problems with warping. The bed in addition hold the print job in place well too, in addition decreasing the accidents of warping.

Other Features of the LOCOOP Y include:

  • Large Door: LOCOOP Y’s massive front facing door manufactures it effortless to take out actually the sizeablest of prints.
  • Extra-Large Removable Bed: The extra sizeable printing device bed lets you print objects that may be not easy with a conventional 3D printing device. The bed in addition comes out easily so that you can remove objects without damaging them. The polycarbonate surface is specially textured to manufacture certain prints adhere well, remain flat, and don’t curl up at the edges.
  • Memory Card Slot: Transfer your creates easily to LOCOOP Y by via a memory card up to 4GB. That’s four times the memory supported by most 3D printing devices.
  • Less Energy Consumption: At just 60 Watts, LOCOOP Y uses half the energy of a conventional 3D Printer. This manufactures printing with LOCOOP Y not just super efficient, but in addition environment friendly. Think of what this may mean for a lab or school running multiple printing devices at the same time.
  • Open Source “CURA” Compatibility: LOCOOP Y is compatible with the CURA interface that you may already understand and love. (It is the most talked about open-source slicer available!) Nothing new to learn. Start exporting G-code immediately.

Meet the Founders


“I’ve enjoyed to create since I was a kid, and now I’m in charge of hardware at a 3D printing startup. It is a dream come true. My hope is that LOCOOP can bridge the gap between academics and creativity and donate everyone a accident to see their designs brought to life.”

Yeo Myung Lim, co-founder of LOCOOP

“My vision for LOCOOP is simple: I want 3D printing to be as effortless as via inkjet printing devices. Ever since I started my Ph.D. in Astronomy, it was my dream to 3D print homes on Mars.”

Induk Lee, co-founder of LOCOOP

This amazing piece of kit has may already been utilized to print different types of rad products.
