As technology has been advancing significantly in the past decade, the trend has continued as now the San Francisco based company OLO 3D have created 3D printing technology with their OLO smartphone model. Interested buyers and the general public cannot buy it just yet, but when it arrives the printing technology will prove to have many uses and unbeatable convenience. Whether you are an industry professional or a just someone wanting to enhance the quality of your photos, the latest 3d print technology will most certainly be a new innovation that everyone will be quite impressed with.
The OLO is priced at just $99 and anyone interested in buying one should not procrastinate as the product is likely to sell out fast. The way that the OLO works is by the use of light as a curing agent from the OLO and most other smartphone brands. The OLO is compatible with Windows, Android and iOS and is constructed in simplistic fashion with just seven components and an engine, once you have downloaded the APP your smartphone does most of the work for the OLO so that files can be uploaded, managed on the internet and sent as needed for printing. The printer is touted as the first social printer and the easy interface allows users to share everything they wish to share within their respective communities. The OLO can operate on battery power if you don’t have access to a wall outlet and is perfect on business travel and vacations with its neoprene shock-proof travel case. Just ten minutes after unpacking, you can be making cool stuff with the OLO as the setup is simple and easy.
In terms of features and specs, the OLO has a resolution of 32 microns while different resins can be purchased from OLO 3D used in various projects and models which allows you to print flexible and hard models. There is also a castable resin available for those who want their models in silver and gold. A variety of colors are available at standard and fair market prices. The technology, while being advanced, may seem complicated and not for beginners but OLO promises that anyone can use their new product. Whether high profile 3d printing sites, like Print Geeks, will vote the OLO among the best 3d printers remains to be seen.
The $99 pledge gets you the OLO 3d printer, a 100g white resin bottle and a sticker set by OLO. For just four dollars more, you can get either the OLO rainbow or dental material set without printer. Prices are higher for packages with more materials and volume. Not bad considering that the OLO as portable as any device weighing only one pound.
