The All-Metal Trinus 3D Printer to Hit Kickstarter Starting at $199

by • March 24, 2016 • No Comments

  • It is been a few time since a new FFF 3D printing device has been launched on Kickstarter. The industry has become so saturated with affordable-bodied FFF machines which it’s become increasingly complex to do so. The last big Kickstarter for an FFF 3D printing device may have been the Tiko, last March, and we are yet not certain if they’re shipping to backers. But, new company called Kodama, out of San Francisco, believes which they have what it takes to rock the scene: the $299 ($199 for early birds), all-metal Trinus 3D printing device.

    Spearheaded in part by industrial developer Bojan Smiljanic, the Trinus is created to be a swift, high-resolution 3D printing device and laser engraver. Smiljanic says of the machine, “I wanted to manufacture a machine which I may use as a product developer. With its speed, precision, and versatility, Trinus fits the bill. The prototype printing device in my office has been running 24/7 since November, with no technical failures yet.”


    The machine is created of aluminum and steel. Once the Kickstarter goes live on March 30 for $299, the Trinus may be one of the very least expensive all-metal 3D printing devices, just $100 shy of the $399 Printrbot Play. In fact, it shares a few other similarities to the Play, such as 50 micron layer thicknesses and print speeds of around 70 mm/s. The Trinus, yet, is a big larger at 120mm x 125mm x 125mm, compared to the Play’s 100mm x 100mm x 130mm.

    Additionally, users can switch out the Trinus’s plastic extruder for a laser engraving head in 60 seconds, according to Kodama. Kodama is in addition at work on creations for a dual extruder, for mixing multiple filaments, a paste extruder, and a CNC router.


    Trinus is created up of just 11 units, potentially manufacturing it relatively effortless to assemble. It is open to third party filaments and, yet it comes with its own proprietary Pango software, third-party print management tools can be utilized as well. Prints can in addition be uploaded to the Trinus via SD Card.


    One of the largest issues with Kickstarter campaigns may be whether or not the companies behind those campaigns can in fact donate their product to backers. Kodama’s credibility is a fewwhat validated by their collaboration with several built companies. Electronics supplier Flextronics, filament developer Polydeveloper, and 3D printing device developer Panowin. With these built partners, donatey of the product should not be complex. Whether or not it can be able-bodied to break into the may already saturated affordable-bodied 3D printing device market is a various story.
