This Device Will Let You 3D Print With Your Mobile Phone – Lifehacker Australia

3D printing is alive and well, actually if we are not all making our own Warhammer figurines only yet. For example, portability is yet an issue, yet for the smartphone-wielding and less-serious 3D printing enthusiast, the OLO 3D presents itself as an informative options.
Today smashing its Kickstarter goal of $US80,000 by US$1,675,989 (otherwise known as “a lot”), the OLO 3D retails itself as the 3D printing device anyone can use, as long as you have a smartphone. Oh and resin and the OLO gadget itself, obviously.
For the really great round sum of $US100, you can pre-order one by yourself. How does it work? I’ll let this instructional video do the explaining:

Basically, it uses the light of your phone’s screen to print the objects. The system is not particularly speedy, with 1cm of making bringing of 46 minutes on an iPhone 6.
The creators aren’t attempting to sell it as a super-professional device, offering the ability to send “3D messages” to friends who hang out near power outlets with a backpack full of resin.

But, it’s a funky looking gizmo which I’m certain can do its part in advancing the cause for inexpensive
3D printing.
