What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About this project

Our goal in making the D2K Insight is to provide regular people like artist, artisans and small business owners access to a reliable, ultra high resolution 3D printer at a price that won’t break the bank.  The D2K Insight 3D printer is the sleek, reliable and affordable consumer solution to producing professional quality 3D objects

 

  

The Stabilizer on top of the Z axis and the Gear gaps remover bolt ensure precision accuracy during the printing process. Your 3D objects will all be uniform. The Stabilizer is firmly fixed the moving Z axis without vibration, the Gap remover is to get rid of the gear gaps. These 2 important components are costly but it provides amazing steady than ever.

Super Fast Leveling - In DLP-SLA 3D printing technology, Build platform Leveling is one of decisive essentials on how you can get high successful print rate. Our re-designed print head uses a universal ball joint that makes adjustments easy and quick that it’s only a minute.

 

Other 3D Printers use several printed circuit boards (PCB), meaning there are dozens of cables and connections, a flaw in any one them or synchronization errors will result in a printing failure. To avoid this we developed our own motherboard, there is only one piece of integrated PCB inside of the D2K Insight , providing a smooth, steady and reliable printing experience.

 

 

There is no need to connect to a computer while printing! You can fully control the printer as standalone device by using its 5 inch LCD touch screen on the front cover. Additionally, the D2K Insight can be also operated by a web browser or a mobile phone, making it one of the easiest 3D printers to use.

Every details about the printing process, (like the image of every sliced layer) is displayed in the LCD touch panel. You can also operate the entire process from the front LCD panel.

You always get updated firmware and slicing software, we keep proceeding the software optimization and improvement periodically.  Also welcome to give us feedback if you got any facilitation experience.

 

The D2K insight has a custom built UV light module which produces the perfect light spectrum (405nm Wavelength) to cure resin, LCD based SLA 3D printer resulting in a true 2K Image free of distortion. 

 

D2K Insight’s body and components are made from aluminum and precision cut by CNC, resulting in a solid, vibration free frame. Translation - no deformations in your prints due to shaking in the printer.

Example:  At a layer thickness of 50 microns, exposure time in 4000ms, the printing speed can be up to 25mm per hour.

Unlike professional 3D printers that can cost tend of thousands of dollars, the D2K Insight is only $599 and produces stunningly similar results to professional high end 3D printers. The resin is affordable (and will remain the same price after the campaign is over). 1 Liter of resin costs $58. You can re-use the remaining resin liquid. So you can experiment and play around without spending a small fortune. The D2K insight is the low cost, high quality 3D printer for the people.

 

 

   

 

By bringing our product directly to the customer on Kickstarter we can keep cost down and innovate quickly. This better suits our mission of creating a high performance, low-cost 3D printer.  

 

Our team has created two successful Kickstarter campaigns for the D2K Illuminate and the D2K Plus 3D Printer.  In both cases we delivered to 100% of our backers on time and continue to engage them in the process of developing and the D2K line of 3D printers. We know what it takes to meet deadlines and are well versed in production. The D2K Insight 3D printer is far along in the development process and the first units will be ready to ship in Febuary of 2018.  

 

 

Product development is our "Life" - We're a team of passionate product developer. Thank you Kickstarter for providing us a great platform to get lots of supporters, all of them facilitating our team in striving for more good products in future.

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenge is getting enough backers to meet our minimum production order quantity (i.e. our funding goal) to ensure that our lead time is fast and our price per unit is low. We have a proven track record of shipping on time and will continue to do so, always.
