On September 4th, AIO Robotics will introduce ALL-IN-ONE 3D copy machine on Kickstarter.
They created a 3D printer with an integrated 3D scanner. The idea is to have an all-in-one 3D printer that is capable of 3D scanning, 3D printing, 3D copying, and 3D faxing. The machine has a 7-inch color touchscreen with an on-board computer (ARM based) so the printer can totally work by itself without connection to a desktop computer. The on-board computer also handles 3D scanning data (HD camera pictures from a swiping laser) and uploads the data to the cloud for final 3D reconstruction.
All linear components are made by CNC-machined aluminum (xyz-carrier, turntable) to ensure super rigid structure without any deforming and heat soaking. In addition, they also created an auto-bed leveling feature by integrating a Z-probe mechanism onto the extruder. This way, users don’t need to calibrate the bed height at all. They will include a full API-package for developers to fully control all sensor and motors.
