Technology has made many of the human fantasies come true. What was an imagination some years back is now the reality. No matter if its smartphones, wearable displays or any other gadget or device, growing technology has been crossing the limitations of impossibilities. One of such astounding inventions is the 3D printers that create solid objects by making material layers on top of each other. B9Creator, a 3D printing kit developed by Michael Joyce is one remarkable addition to these printers.
Made with stainless steel and anodized aluminium, the B9Creator uses a projector mechanically attached to the machine that glows light so that resin material can be cured setting it in place allowing it to produce high resolution, fragile moulds. Around two and a half feet tall, it weighs less than 30 pounds and comes up with basic software so that its users can come up with new models. Once the project is completed, an open API will be availed to developers for advancing the existing hardware and software of the printer.
At present, the B9Creator is one of the most successful projects of 3D printer looking for funding on website, which is supposed to be capable of generating more detailed and complex models as compared to the other 3D printers. So far an amount of US$164,418 has already been raised by the backers with 19 days still left for funding deadline. Donating US$2,375 or more a B9Creator 3D printing kit will be received by the supporters and the delivery date of limited number of printers is assumed August, 2012.
