A small portable 3D printer and multitool engraving system has been launched via Kickstarter this week which offers a unique battery-powered fabrication machine that is biodegradable and uses open source firmware and software.

“Poly is a multitool 3D printer that uses open source firmware and software, made in PHA, a totally ecological and compostable material. The concept behind Poly is based on three keywords: open-source, eco-friendly, and upcycling. Poly is equipped with a range of tools: an extruder nozzle, a laser engraving kit, a chocolate extruding kit, and all of them can be quickly alternated by a magnetic mechanism. It has a printing area of 6cmx6cmx6cm and it can create, in addition to countless plastic objects (in PLA), designs and chocolate shapes.”

It starts from €254 with shipping expected to take place during September 2018.

If this could be adapted to add a head a CAM grinding and drilling tool with only shallow depth, it could be used to make circuit-boards. (Laser engravers don’t quite cut it for that due to small drill size, pardon the pun.) 60x60mm might not sound much for a circuit-board, but most projects don’t need a big circuit board these days with surface mount devices. The depth needed for this function is very shallow (under half a centimeter) so if modification of gearing ratio to the vertical lifting mechanism to improve the provided pressure that should work well if needed,… Read more »
