Voxel8 comes with 3d printer for printing electronics




The American Voxel8 has a 3D printer built electronics that can be printed. A first version of the device, the company is demonstrating this week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Masterminded Voxel8 Professor Jennifer Lewis of the US Harvard University. She was previously involved in research teams to 3d printers for lithium-ion batteries were working . Nowadays she develops including former students of Harvard technique to print electronics.

The printer can Voxel8 oneself print electronics. The device can not only create the casing, but it can also create special conductive “ink” electrical circuits. Completely automatic, the process is not yet, because it is still necessary to manually add chips to the object to be printed.

For now, the device can only be developed casings for drones, but over time the printer can be used for specific applications, such as making hearing aids. The 3D printer can make polylactic acid and conductive ink devices to a size of 10 by 15 by 10 centimeters. The required software runs in the cloud and reads STL, ply-, OBJ, off- and amf-files.

Anyone interested, the printer can order all at Voxel8. However, the device is not cheap, because you really have to 8999 dollars, about 7550 euros to be deposited. Voxel8 promises to end the first printers to deliver this year to the first customers.
