09 June 17Unbelievable: project of conveyor 3D printer raises required sum on Kickstarter in 15 minutes
Blackbelt3D startup has developed a unique conveyor 3D printer and launched crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for its bulk production. Just 15 minutes later, €50 000 were invested in the project, the exact sum asked by the developers.
Blackbelt3D’s conveyor 3D printer is common FDM equipment with a conveyor belt instead of a traditional 3D printing table. It provides two advantages:
- unlimited printing space along one of axes (in case of corresponding supporting constructions);
- possibility to activate automated operation (to print a batch of products, one should not monitor completion of a previous item in order to put the 3D printer into operation again).
A rectangular bent with extruders is adjusted above operating space at an angle of 15°-45°. Due to the special bent position, the printing heads can easily move along two axes, and moving along the third one is provided by conveyor belt motions.
Other technical characteristics:
- operating space: 340 × 340 × ∞ mm;
- compatibility with popular filaments for FDM printing: ABS, PLA, and PETG.
The equipment set includes three additional nozzles of various diameters. The product will be supplied from mid fall. More details about the conveyor 3D printer can be found here.
