A Peachy 3D Printer Update

By on October 18th, 2013 in printer


The makers of the revolutionary USD$100 resin-based Peachy 3D printer, which has raised a launch amount exceeding USD$600K, have issued a video update of their project’s progress. 
In the video, co-founder James Cooper explains some of the difficulties controlling the laser that they’ve recently overcome. It appears that their team is working through a number of issues in the unique audio-feed approach used by the Peachy to significantly reduce costs. We’ve also learned that the Peachy team is using OpenSCAD 3D design software to develop the device. 
We’re quite hopeful that their new approach succeeds. If it does, it could very significantly change the landscape in personal 3D printing by massively reducing costs while providing high quality prints, a combination not yet achieved by anyone.
