Every day, engineers all over the world are working on new and exciting 3D printing technologies, but few of these are as intriguing as the FLUX project is. Flux, the all-in-one modular 3D printer, scanner & laser engraver we reported last month, is a very promising and intriguing device. Today the Taiwanese team behind the project has just launched FLUX on Kickstarter, seeking $100,000 in crowdfunding.

This multi-functional 3D printer combines FDM 3D printing technology with user-friendliness, simplicity and a theoretically unlimited amount of create functions like 3D scanning, laser-cutting etc. And they are aiming at private users through a compact, modular and cool design, along with a relatively modest price tag in the region of $499 (early bird special) to $899.

Key to this versatility is an ever-growing array of interchangeable modules. These can be integrated into the machine, allowing private users to easily combine a host of tools into one single 3D printer. The basic model already comes with a built-in 3D scanner that allows you to easily 'clone' objects just like a copy machine, but then in 3D. In addition, the machine's first interchangeable module is already included: a laser engraver with a 200mW laser head, which will add that extra dimension to your creative possibilities.

You'll have to pledge quick because the minimum pledge of $499, which will get backers a complete FLUX kit with 500g of material, is limited for 200 backers only. But backers need to be patient as well: you will have to wait until July next year to get one of these machines. Check it out here on Kickstarter.
