Singapore based 3D printer manufacturer Blacksmith Group is set to launch its all-in-one machine, Blacksmith Genesis, on August 12, 2014. Designed to be a 3D printer + scanner + copier, the Blacksmith Genesis is a FDM (fused deposition modeling) based 3D printer made for everyone to use.

The printer uses a rotary printing mechanism unlike most 3D printers, which use a Cartesian platform (XYZ). The rotary printing mechanism operates in a similar manner to a record player. It prints by continuously rotating the print platform in a clockwise direction and the extruder in a radial manner.

Blacksmith Genesis also comes with an in-built camera that provides automatic error detection during printing. It allows you to monitor your 3D printing via your smartphone.

Blacksmith Genesis will be 'Live' on Indiegogo on 12 Aug at 12 noon (SGT) / 11 Aug at 11 pm (EST). For early adopters, Blacksmith Group is offering the Blacksmith Genesis for USD 1200 only. Limited to 30 units only, this offer saves you $1000 off its USD 2,200 retail price.
