"BoXZY" integrated 3D printer, milling machine and laser processing machine capable of processing from plastic material to metal and wood
A universal machine tool that changes quickly into three kinds of tools, namely 3D printer, CNC milling machine, laser processing machine, simply by replacing parts for output and processing "BoXZY"is. In addition to plastic materials, wood and metal can be processed freely, so that small-scale machining can be enjoyed more easily and freely.
You can see what kind of things can be done with BoXZY by seeing the following movie.

It is BoXZY that put together three kinds of machine tools such as a 3D printer capable of outputting solids. All output and processing can be executed with a resolution of 4 micrometers.
In order to use three kinds of functions properly, a unit for outputting and processing on the top surface of BoXZY ......
Just remove it and replace it OK. This is a unit for milling and the material that can be processed is aluminum, plastic, acrylic, wood and other metals like hard metal and hard wood. The maximum machining range is 7 × 7 × 7 inches (177.8 mm).
This is a unit for laser processing. The laser processable area is a 6.5 × 6.5 inch (165.1 mm) square space, and the height of the processable object is 7 inches (177.8 mm). The laser output is 2000 mW, the processing diameter is 445 nm, the material that can be processed is wood, leather, plastic, etc.
And the unit for 3D printing is kore. Materials that can be output with 3D printers are plastics, polyvinyl alcohol, elastomer type resinsNinja Flex· ABS resin and others.
BoXZY is packed in three sizes in a size that can be placed on a desk, a 3D printer, CNC milling machine, laser processing machine, and it seems that you can easily reach out to metal processing etc easily.
The output / processing parts attached to the top surface move freely in the horizontal direction freely, and the "base" part that will be output or what will be processed will move vertically.
It is like this when dismantling BoXZY.
State of output. The output speed as a 3D printer is 30 to 150 mm / s, and there are two kinds of available nozzle tip sizes, 0.35 mm and 0.4 mm. In addition, the tip parts for 3D printers can be easily replaced if they are J-Head nozzles.
Milling enables accurate cutting, so it is also possible to engrave fine irregular patterns on the surface of objects.
You can also make metal parts yourself.
Not only can BoXZY enjoy a wide variety of output and processing, its elaborate output and processing precision is also one of its attractions.

Circuit board made with CNC milling machine. Eyes are likely to turn around because it is too small.
If you use a laser processing machine you can also print detailed patterns on the surface of trees and leather.
BoXZY is currentlyKickstarterDuring the recruitment of the investment, there are 840,000 dollars (about 100 million yen) far exceeding the target amount of 50,000 dollars (about 6 million yen). To get BoXZY with all three functions of 3D printer, CNC milling cutter and laser cutter, it is necessary to invest 2499 dollars (about 300,000 yen), and for delivery to Japan it costs $ 250 (about 30,000 yen ) Will be required.
If you have another investment of $ 1999 (approx. 240,000 yen) you can get two of the parts for milling, 3D printer, laser processing machine, and if you invest more than $ 2,499 you will get more investment Materials and tools that can be used for processing, such as sets of expendable milling cutting blades and those with filaments that can be used in 3D printing set, will be added.
The deadline for "BoXZY" is 22:45 on Saturday, April 18, 2015, delivery will be scheduled from November to December 2015.
