M3D Pro 50,000 yen 3D printer that standardly installs a feedback circuit and a heat bed from the sensor

In the world of 3D printers in which the technology develops on a day to day trip, it is sometimes said that functions that were only installed in high-priced models until a few years ago are now adopted as low-cost models. 3D printer developed by M3D "M3D Pro"Is equipped with a feedback mechanism from sensors attached to each moving axis and has realized a low price of about 50,000 yen while installing a" heat bed "with built-in heat source.

One of the major features of the M3D Pro is that it incorporates a sensor that senses rotation to all motors. It is said that high-precision control is possible by implementing "closed feedback circuit" which software senses information from the motor and feeds it back by software. The speed of movement at 3D printing is 80 mm / sec, and at non-printing time it can move at high speed of 150 mm / sec.

In addition, although it is indispensable for enabling high-precision printing, although it is a print bed "heat bed" equipped with a preheating mechanism, in general, a heat bed is to be installed in a high price model, a low price version In the case of a model, it is often treated as an option, and its price is often not cheap. M3D Pro is equipped with such a heat bed as standard, and the point that power consumption is kept low is also a point.

According to the M3D, the current consumption of a typical heat bed is typically 5 watts per square inch, but the M3D Pro realizes low power consumption of only 0.6 watts per area.

Also, it is also a big point that the surface of the heat bed is of a mirror surface type. By using glass of quality used for smartphones and others, the reproducibility of the plane becomes high, making it possible to output higher quality.

In addition, the M3D Pro software has "tutorial mode" installed. This is a feedback of the voices received when the company sold the previous model, and users can learn the functions and usage of 3D printers while learning each function one by one .

M3D Pro realizes many functions by utilizing open software such as slicer "Cura" and furthermore numerical control function by computer "G code"By supporting Simplify3D and Octoprint, third-party slicers can be easily utilized. In the future development, up to 10 multi-printer functions and print functions via the network will also be realized.

Third-party filaments with a diameter of 1.75 mm, which is an industry standard, can be used for filaments used for printing. Moreover, it is more durable than usual ABS and PLA materialABS-RIt also makes it possible to correspond to a wide range of applications.

The main functions of M3D Pro are as follows. The size of the printable object is 7.5 inches high x 7 inches wide x 7 inches deep (about 19 x 17.8 x 17.8 cm) with a print layer thickness of 25-350 microns. It has a "Standalone" mode that can be operated as a standalone without connecting a PC, and it is possible to operate at high speed and high stability by installing ARM dual core CPU.

Also, it is also a high point that a two-year warranty comes along.

M3D Pro is a cloud funding siteKickstarterWe are looking for investment in. About US $ 380,000 (about 38 million yen) is gathered for the target price of 100,000 dollars (about 10 million yen).

Several of the early investment discount system Early Bird plan has already been filled, but there is a vacancy remaining in the plan that can get one M3D Pro from the investment of 499 dollars (about 50,000 yen) The following plans are set up. "Early Production tier" which can get the early model of production early from January to February 2017 is about 499 dollars (about 50,000 yen), possibility that the software may have some restrictions because it will be the final stage of development . "Market ready production tier" becomes a commercial model, and the investment amount is 499 dollars (about 50,000 yen). In addition, "Early-release tier" which can get the real machine earlier than the above two plans will be shipped within 2016, but we need to deal with beta tests, each with a capital contribution of 100 dollars to 200 dollars ( About 10,000 yen to 20,000 yen) It is contents to be increased.

· Early Production tier
(There are some restrictions on software)
January 2017: $ 499
February 2017: $ 499

· Market ready production tier
(Commercial state model)
March 2017: $ 499
April 2017: $ 499
May 2017: $ 499
June 2017: $ 499

· Early-release tier
(Fastest plan · However beta test may be necessary)
December 2016: $ 599 (with limited beta test)
November 2016: $ 699 (with some beta tests)

For shipping to Japan, a shipping fee of 75 dollars (about 7500 yen) is required separately. The deadline of investment is Japan time on October 1, 2016 (Sat) 22:16.
