Hotrod Henry Supercharged is coming with a model in the Vintagelook, that want to be much nicer than the competition. The campaign is kick starter but runs a bit slow.
Meanwhile countless 3D printers for the home romp on the market. And is the most common is that they want to look like a large futuristic toy and not quite with the living room furniture. It wants to change the Aye Aye Labs.
The design Office has developed Hotrod Henry Supercharged from Poland a 3D-printer for home, somewhat resembling a refrigerator from the 1970s and should be available in almost all colors. “We wanted a warmer look,” write the designer. “Vintage products are often associated with stability, robustness, perfect simplicity and universal elegance.”
3D printer is five times faster than the competition
Hotrod Henry technically has a lot on the box. The 3D printer a printing speed of 450 mm / s and is around five times faster than most competing products according to the manufacturer. Still, he is working precisely in the 350 x 350 x 600 mm large space and prints layers that are only 50 microns thick. For comparison, a human hair has between 40 to 70 microns. So even the smallest details can print artists and engineers.
You can become a reality also life-sized statues. This has proved the manufacturer by Sir
Paul McCartney he has built several components. The legendary singer and bassist of the Beatles is 1.80 m. Another special feature: Hotrod Henry is not picky in the feed. He processes all print materials, which are available on the market from PLA via flexible thermoplastics up to carbon.
Kickstarter: life-size 3D-statues for €1,995
Aye Aye Labs has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for the series production of the 3D printer. It runs slow. So far come together nearly €1300 of €75,000 funding target.
There remain only two weeks time to support the project.
For a contribution of €1,995 financiers get a life-size statue of himself for €3,390 the mini version of the printer and for €5.590 the great Hotrod Henry. And if the campaign is successful, the remaining time is not long.
