The LumiFold Demonstrates The Power Of Open Source

The Lumifold 3D Printer is a Stereolithographic/Photo-Activated Printer that is small, light-weight, and folds to become one of the most portable 3D Printers available today. Lumifold is an Open Source project that started as a Photo-Activated 3D Printer that requires the use of an external projector but will soon have the option of a small overhead projector, that when added, fits seamlessly with Lumifold. The Lumifold 3D Printer has a maximum Build Volume/Area of 90 x 90x 90mm.

While the overhead projector is being developed you can currently use the Lumifold with any standard projector. If you are purchasing Lumifold for the classroom and that room has a projector for presentations, then you already have the necessary light source. There is an integrated Ultraviolet (UV) sensor that lets you skip testing of how the intensity of  the light from your particular projector will effect your projects; this feature saves you a lot of time and money and lets you focus on just Printing. Lumifold is also the first 3D Printer

Lumifold HoloDock

to display a 3D Holographic representation of your project in progress or 3D image of your Design File with an add-on called the HoloDock. The HoloDock lets see whats happening saving you the neck pain of standing over your Printer to see its progress. The Lumifold 3D Printer also has another add-on that would allow you to 3D Scan objects to be easily replicated with your Lumifold. There are a number of options to choose from when buying your LumiFold; at the time of this article there are still at least 10 days left in the IndieGoGo campaign to get one for as little as $390 USD. We really like the indiegogo|http://www.indiegogo.com/assets/igg_logo_color_web_black_v-f5230cf8460d2189a6eedcab748090c5.pngDeluxe option which makes your Lumifold uniquely portable by providing you a battery, allowing you to Print when power outlets are elusive. The Deluxe Kit is $599 USD, comes with a fully assembled Lumifold, and also includes the HoloDock.
