Developers of three-dimensional printers have made a new attempt to create a low-cost model while maintaining high quality printing. A team of researchers and engineers calling itself Tiko 3D, placed the project on the website Kickstarter, which was created to raise funds for the implementation of various creative, research and production ideas.

Developers set out to carefully consider and to reduce the price every element of the device to eventually get a product that is easy to make, easy to use, even at home and support in working condition for a long time. Poluchivshiёsya printer for printing additive, they promise to sell for only $ 179 (about 10 thoUSAnd rubles).

The main achievement of the construction of a new 3D-printer TIKO - this is his one-piece body. Typically, it is one of the most expensive parts. To ensure high accuracy printing three-dimensional printers are equipped fastened together individual guides that provide movement of the print head.

Their situation must be finely adjusted before using the printer and continually make the adjustments. It spent a lot of time, which inevitably leads to an increase in costs and the cost.

TIKO housing has rails on the inside, which are embedded in the already pre-adjusted aluminum rails. This design makes them virtually inseparable. As a result, during printing head nozzle can be displaced virtually eliminated, allowing to print up to 50 microns without any expensive high-precision components.

An important achievement of our engineers believe the triangular shape of the body of the printer (it is called delta-printer), which is equipped with three sets of holders of the printhead. Besides, part of the device, where the print is fully protected from external factors such as wind or any other air movements. The printer also has an internal accelerometer and automatically turns off if it is something to worry, for example, children.

The new printer is equipped with a liquefier (melted printed material prior to application), which does not require active external cooling. That is, in the design of the device does not need costly noisy fans, who replaced the system vents.

Another nice feature TIKO - it is a flexible substrate with a special coating, which is easy to remove the finished product.



As the "ink" to be used TIKO thread of polylactide, ABS, nylon, polystyrene or high. Upload coil material is as simple as changing a cartridge in the normal laser printer - just open the lid.

The dimensions of the new delta printer are only 390 by 221 by 237 mm, and its weight - only 1.7 kg, excluding the spool. The total volume of the region where the seal - 2.27 liters.

For the production of your printer developers hoping to collect on the site Kickstarter funding in the amount of $ 100,000. But in a relatively short period of time (28 days) the amount of voluntary donations for this project has already exceeded $ 430 million.

We can already pre-order the innovative printer on the company's website, and the first delivery is scheduled for the products collected in November 2015. Producers promise to transfer one coil filament printed with your printer.
