iBox Printers raises over $400k of funding for the iBox Nano 3D Printer utilizing a revolutionary technology making it a first of its kind. The technology invented and deployed in the iBox Nano enables a very small yet high resolution 3D printer at a price that everyone can afford. The core technology is UVLCD (Ultra-Violet Liquid Crystal Display) which employs UV tolerant LCDs and high power UV LEDs to cure UV sensitive Resin. Other advantages of its UVLCD technology is ultra-low power consumption and silent operation. The Nano is so quiet its barely above ambient noise levels and with a power consumption low enough to support battery powered operation; also a first for a resin based 3D Printer.
The crowd funding success places the Nano as the 4th highest funded 3D printer on Kickstarter. The iBox Nano is a 3D Resin Printer that is the worlds smallest, quietest, most affordable, and only battery powered 3D Resin Printer. Consumers will benefit from its portability, silent operation, and affordability while creating toys, jewelry, crafts and gifts; and still available for $269 for early adopters.
The iBox Nano is a 3D Resin Printer, resin printers typically print using various technologies such as SLA (stereo lithography) which typically use a laser or DLP projector. iBox Printers has invented a completely new and unique way to 3D Print using UVLCD technology instead of a Laser or Projector, this allows for smaller packaging, completely silent operation, an order of magnitude reduction in power consumption, and most important a dramatic reduction in pricing. For example the Form 1 retails for $3300 and the iBox Nano retails for $299.
Quote from founder [Trent Carter : Founder] “We feel this new technology will be another step to bringing 3D resin printers into the home. “
iBox Printers believes the iBox Nano will accelerate the adoption of 3D printers into the home market because of its affordability, silent operation, ease of use, small size, and cordless WiFi browser based printing. It also simplifies the user experience by allowing browser based printing from any client, including mobile devices, without installing software.
Quote from founder [Trent Carter : Founder] “We didn’t set out to improve 3D printing, we set out to remove the barriers to get 3D printers in the hands of everyone. These barriers include cost, size, noise, and complexity, thats why we have created the worlds smallest, quietest and most affordable 3D Resin Printer that is incredibly easy to use. Anyone can start printing within 10 minutes of unboxing the device. No assembly, no setup, and no software downloads.”
