Rabbit Proto – printing technology ready electronic devices





3D-printing technology does not stand still, and the developers are constantly finding new uses for 3D-printers . One of the latest achievements in this field is the development of students from Stanford University, dubbed the Rabbit Proto, which can print electronic circuits directly at object creation time.

The device consists of a special nozzle that is put on the extruder printer. Currently the technology is fully adapted for use with 3D-printers family RepRap, but the creators say that the nozzle can also be upgraded and for use with other three-dimensional printing devices.

The purpose of the technology is the ability to Rabbit Proto printing plastic device with conductive parts per actuation printer. For example, using such a printer can print the first part of the plastic object is then applied to a conductive track, and at the end of the plastic housing to finish printing. In this 3D-printer can print on uneven surfaces.

Preorder on the device, you can now, however, students, developers plan to begin deliveries in the summer when the university graduate. The cost of the base model of the extruder was 350 dollars and get a full 3D-printer equipped Rabbit Proto, can in 2499 dollars.

To demonstrate the new technology developers posted a video showing the process of printing the game controller.
