teleportation for objects is still a science friction, but the ZEUS All-In-One 3D Copy Machine could be considered as a teleportation equivalent, or more correctly put, a facsimile for physical objects aka 3D fax. actually, it is more than that, it is also a 3D scanner, a 3D printer, and well, a 3D copier. just think of it as an All-In-One printer, but one that does it in 3D. yes. 3D. it is a wonder and it could be a real game changer in the prototyping industry. just imagine that you could “fax” a 3D prototype and it gets printed out at your client’s end halfway round the world for comments and feedbacks. obviously, this would be a dream workflow and ensures both you and your client are always on the same page. no more excuses such as “this is not what we saw on the computer 3D render” or similar excuses that would result in wasted time and unnecessary expenditures.
the ZEUS All-In-One 3D Copy Machine promised a one-touch function, just like regular AIO printers, and it is supposed to be drop-dead simple to operate that even a kid could do it – as implied in their pledge video. build-wise, the ZEUS All-In-One 3D Copy Machine is a quite a looker too – it has an aluminum chassis, power-coated in moonstone white with black anodized side panels, while the internal’s linear components are of CNC-machined aluminum, thus ensuring a rigid machine which translates to better print quality, prevents deformation and heat soaking. a generously sized 7″ touchscreen on the outside, reminiscing of those found on commercial photocopy center, is where you will input the tasks – making the machine looks almost like our AIO printers. however, since this machine is made to deal with 3D stuff, it has a pretty sizable statute – measuring 610 x 406 x 406 mm (about 24 x 16 x 16 inches). and oh, unlike regular 3D printer or 3D scanner, this thing has its own “brain” by the way of a 1.7GHz quad-core processor to handle what you may throw at it.
the ZEUS All-In-One 3D Copy Machine is currently on Kickstarter and US backers can get it for $2,499. international backers will have to shell out 800 bucks more plus shipping. last checked, there’s like five units left for International backers – so if you are outside of the US and Canada and want one, then you better getting going and hit the pledge button.
