Fuel3D Scanner Crushes Crowdfunding Goal with Days Remaining on Kickstarter Campaign

Fuel3DFuel 3D handheld scanner passed their initial crowdfunding goal of $75,000 in the first two days of launching.  The campaign currently stands just under $300,o00 with several days remaining to raise funds.  Organizers set a stretch goal of $250,000 which was easily surpassed.

Fuel3D is an affordable handheld 3D scanner will deliver high resolution shape and color capture for a range of 3D modeling applications, such as 3D printing, 3D art and 3D game development. The device has an  expected final market price of $1,500.

“We have been delighted by the reaction to our Kickstarter campaign, which has been a huge Fuel3D imagevalidation of our vision for bringing a lower-cost 3D scanning option to the masses,” said Stuart Mead, CEO, Fuel3D. “We have vastly surpassed our initial goal and have received many orders from our core US and UK markets and beyond – as far afield as Australia and Japan. We have been inundated by approaches from distribution partners and technical collaborators, and the interest from venture capital companies and even national defense organizations tells me that we’re really on to something.”

Thanks to Kickstarter feedback, we think that offering automated stitching of multiple scans to create 360 degree models is the most useful feature that we could add into the product bundle,” added Mead.

Fuel3D recently announced they were working with Uformia to incorporate “Stitching” or the ability to combine multiple scans into a single image.

The team that put Fuel3D together herald from Oxford University.  Initially they were focusing on the medical imaging sector but realized there was greater scale in creating a device for the masses.  Fuel3D will bring point and shoot 3D imaging to both consumers and professionals alike.
