New technologies step by step change our world and blow up our imagination. And Autodesk make a next step for changing our reality! Just print your world!
Autodesk has launched their first open source 3D printer. And make him the name PR48. But at this moment it's still in beta. New device allows looking from the other side to a new approach to making the Ember 3D printed things. Autodesk is expected to start shipping the Ember in March. Autodesk will also be selling it online in the near future.
At first time, the 3D printer buyer package will include:
-The ultra-high resolution “Explorer Edition” Ember 3D printer
-2x 1L bottles of clear prototyping resin
-An Ember finishing kit
-Dedicated technical support and access to the Ember Explorer Forum
We’re open sourcing our reason for a couple of reasons: We have an open approach, and encourage the use of 3rd-party materials in our printer. We include 3rd-party materials in the defaults for Ember’s online model preparation and slicer, and are adding more as we optimize their settings for Ember: you can check them out at ember printer dot com. (You don’t actually need an Ember to use the site.) This Instruct ably describes how to test new resins. Autodesk is thinking differently about 3D printing, and sharing under a license reflects our commitment.
Open sourcing our resin formulation is only the first step in the journey of opening our 3D printer and our Spark 3D printing platform.
