Autodesk 3D Printer

Carl Bass (CEO Autodesk) recently announced that Autodesk will be introducing their own 3D Printer.
Looks like a coffee maker to me!!

Very exciting stuff , this 3D printer in conjunction with their open software platform for 3D printing called Spark,  will make it more reliable yet simpler to print 3D models, and easier to control how that model is actually printed.

Spark will be open and freely licensable to hardware manufacturers and others who are interested. Same for our 3D printer – the design of the printer will be made publicly available to allow for further development and experimentation. The printer will be able to use a broad range of materials, made by us and by others, and we look forward to lots of exploration into new materials.

It was only a matter of time before Autodesk created their own 3D printer, it'll be interesting to see how they stack up against the competition both price-wise and performance.

Check out the announcement here at Inthefold.

  1. I was looking at this. I like the open architecture idea, but I would have to see if that is worth the pricetag. Either way, I'm gonna check it out in a few months when they release more info. Cheers, Shari
