Fitchburg, WI based Radiant Fabrication has launched today the Lionhead, the consumer-level 3D printer to incorporate printing and 3D scanning into a single device on Kickstarter.
Radiant Fabrication was formed in 2011 to make 3D printing accessible to non-technical consumers. The Radiant Lionhead is more than just a printer, it's a scanner, too. It connects directly to a self-developed 3D modeling software — Radiant Li so when users finish with modeling, they could just click Print.
For scanning, users can press the Scan button, place an object on the Lionhead printing platform, and close the doors. In a few minutes, a copy of the object will be ready in Li for any improvements to be made.
Radiant Fabrication is offering the Lionhead Bunny with four printheads and the fully grown form the Lionhead with eight printheads. Lionhead features adjustment free filament drive, automatic calibration, high-power heaters, tweak-Free software for better prints, and carbon air filter.
Radiant Fabrication's four printhead Lionhead Bunny (beta) printer/scanners is available on Kickstarter for $1,649 (EUR 1,253 / GBP1,060).

Hi, I should be really interested in a ALL IN ONE, 3D scanner and printer, for small objects, 2 inch for each side of a cube I mean, using just one material (ABS) for a cost, for the machine, of 2/300 €/$/£... I think that a machine with these characteristics, should be a GREAT xmas gift (for friends and for me too!!!). Thanks in advance for your work.

Hey Reprap4life, Our intention for the initial release was to match what is printed with what you see in Li, our modeling software. As we move forward with our beta testing we will be implementing a few smoothing techniques to improve print quality and surface finish. Thanks, Nathan
