As time has passed, 3D printers have become more sophisticated and more readily available to buy for home use. 3DPandora, a full-colour plastic 3D printer, was announced today by El Monte, CA based Global Trend Trading Technology. The printer is designed to produce coloured 3D prints using CMYK 3d technology, that uses a "special" type of binder to make powder from each layer adhere more tightly.

"We spent six years working on the "magic" powder for more than a dozen trials and errors. Ultimately we come up with a highly satisfactory recipe until this year." states the team on its Kickstarter webpage.

Single and full-colour plastic parts are produced by hardening powder-like plastic materials layer by layer with a laser. The color can be blended into each other with smooth transitions. In addition, it requires no supports and will not require post-processing or painting.

After the printout is finished, the prints will be soaked into a curing agent for 20 seconds in order to improve its toughness and hardness.

The machine uses four separate control panels to control the entire printer. All functions are migrated into the software system, so the total outlook will be simplified for three distinct zones, including "Power" button, "Execution" zone on the upper side and "Maintenance" zone on the down side.

Product Specifications:

  • Build Volume Size: 300 * 292 * 140mm ( or 11.8'' * 11.5'' * 5.5'')
  • Resolution: 9600 * 2400dpi

They desperately need our help to fund it, but apparently not enough to find someone who speaks English to narrate their video. them being that inept in creating their pitch video does not give me much confidence in their ability to solve other problems.
