We have introduced several home 3D printers, but if you need more functions, the following FABtotum personal fabricator should be able to catch your eyes.
The FABtotum is a multi functional personal fabrication device that comes in three sizes for different purposes. Unlike a normal 3D printer, the personal fabricator features an awesome combination of 3D printer, 3D scanner, and milling machine. Using its FFF technique (Fused Filament Fabrication) FABtotum is cable to high speed print 3D models with PLA/ABS, and built-in heated bed prints will proceed smoothly for higher quality models, moreover, its dual head with an engraving/milling spindle motor make the 3D printing work with many common materials such as wood, light aluminum or brass alloys.
Moreover, the fabrication device is also a 3D scanner, using its built-in laser scanner FABtotum can acquire both small and complex objects, with the help of its 3D printing feature, you don’t worry about having enough 3D creations to fill your showcase. Apart from that, as a milling machine FABtotum even can help you make your own circuit boards. Additionally, the fabricator not only can be controlled via a computer, but also be operated via LAN, wireless LAN and remotely from the Internet, and as an open source project developers can easily bring more functions for the combo of 3D printer, 3D scanner and milling machine. After the break, check out the following demo video.
At present the team of FABtotum is raising fund at Indiegogo. Pledging $999 will let you own the fabrication device. If you’re interested, jump to Indiegogo official site for more details.
