iBox Printers Inc announced today the launch of its iBox Nano 3D Resin Printer. The iBox Nano is claimed to be the worlds smallest, quietest, portable, most affordable, and only battery powered 3D Resin Printer.

Many of the resin printers on the market use DLP technology to create and control the UV light used to cure the resin. But DLP projector bulbs will need to be replaced at 2000-8000 hours of use. iBox Nano 3D Resin Printer uses UV LEDs rated at 50,000+ hours, which is equivalent to 17 years, running 8 hours a day.

The iBox Nano is designed for the home user who wants to print small to average sized 3D objects with good resolution. The iBox Nano prints at 328 microns on the X-Y axis and can print down to 0.39 microns on the Z axis.

iBox Printers believes the iBox Nano will accelerate the adoption of 3D printers into the home market because of its silent operation and small size and cordless WiFi browser based printing. The printer uses very little power and generates almost no heat, thus not requiring a cooling fan and its associated noise. iBox Nano also simplifies the user experience by allowing browser based printing from any client, including mobile devices, without installing software. The Nano is also a full Linux computer integrating a Raspberry Pi and has 8Gig of storage, 4x USB ports for mouse and keyboard and will drive an external monitor in 4K via its integrated HDMI port.

Weighing only 3 pounds, it is also small enough and light enough to just slide in your backpack, making it truly portable. It is also the first battery powered 3D Resin Printer. The battery option lasts approximately 10 hours.

iBox Printers was founded in 2014 and is based out of Melbourne Florida. Trent Carter, Founder of iBox Printers said, "We didn't set out to improve 3D printing, we set out to remove the barriers to get 3D printers in the hands of everyone. These barriers include cost, size, noise, and complexity, thats why we have created the worlds smallest, quietest and most affordable 3D Resin Printer."

There's no need to discuss print quality or size... For most who invested in this piece of junk got screwed by the creator. And to boot, he had the nerve to start yet another Kickstarter project, only he got caught by his previous backers who have revolted and convinced any new backers to "run... run like hell"...

The print quality looks crappy for an SLA printer. My FFF Up! Plus from 2012 can make a cleaner rook than that. I feel bad for all the cheapskates who got suckered into funding this (you get what you pay for). Small build size, sub-standard print quality, frivolous features like wireless printing/browser-based printing, and laughable product name = FAIL

Agreed, I was VERY interested but the build volume is just too small.

That 20 mm limit in build area... that will cut off this product sellings. They MUST increase that value to at least 40 mm, or nobody will buy it.
