You’re putting together a new piece of furniture when you realize you don’t have the right wrench. Your friend does though, so they fax it over.
That’s the future promised by AIO Robotics‘ planned Zeus 3D printer, a combo printer and scanner expected to launch on Kickstarter September 4. It will be an all-in-one machine that can scan, fax, copy and print 3D objects.
Quartz caught that the team behind the printer posted further details in the RepRap forum this week, including that the Zeus will cost less than buying a MakerBot Replicator 3D printer and Digitizer scanner. Replicators sell for $2,199 or $2,799, and the yet-to-be-released Digitizer likely won’t be cheap either. So the Zeus will be a hefty investment considering printers like the Pirate3D Buccaneer will soon be available for a few hundred dollars.
