About

1- THE COMMUNITY

In the Makness community there is space for everyone! We have a 3D printing system that fits the needs of each user.

 

1.1 ARE YOU A MAKER WHO WANTS TO ENJOY A HIGH PERFORMANCE 3D PRINTER AT  A LOW PRICE?

Our MKI 3D printer has the best performance at a very competitive price in the current market. With open firmware and you can use the 1.75mm filament you want!


Main features:  

Dual extruder: the MK I has a dual extruder system that allows to print in two colors at the same time

 

Wireless: you can send the print order from any device, such as PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone, because MK I is WiFi ready! 

After-cooling: with the MK I you don't need to wait 30min until the heated bed cools down  after the print finishes. It comprises an after-cooling system which blows fresh air directly to the printed object's base, so you can retire your object in just a blink of an eye!

Price: The MKI has excellent printing features on the market, but for less than half the price of its direct competitors!

1.2 ARE YOU A MAKER WHO ALSO WANTS TO MAKE MONEY?

If you consider that your design seems to be a popular product or simply you want to help other people with them, you can request us to become a Makness freelancer and you can also earn money for each 3D model download. You will also receive some extra benefits (discounts) as a freelancer, and even become Makness staff!


 

1.3- DO YOU WANT TO PRINT SOMETHING IN A COMFORTABLE AND SIMPLE WAY WITHOUT KNOWLEDGE OF 3D PRINTING?

 

If you want to print something for a hobby, necessity or simply because you want it, but you do not have the time or 3D printing knowledge, with our MK1 printer you will not have that problem, it does all for you! So you only need to push a button and your object will be created in front of you!

With your MKI printer you simply need to follow 3 simple steps to print any object:

1- Choose the model you want from the catalog, or ask the Makness team to create it for you.

 

2- Choose the capsule of printing material that you like and put it in the printer.

3- Click and the model will be sent by Wifi to your printer and start printing.

 

In order to facilitate the whole process, we have developed a self-insertion system of capsules, so you only need to place the capsule in the holder and the filament is automatically introduced into the extruder when printing begins.

 

2- THE CATALOG

3D models for everybody!

2.1- EXCLUSIVE

Our catalog is based on exclusive models designed by our team ant the makers community, so it will grow continuously listening to your needs.

 

2.2- VALIDATED ONE BY ONE

We have created 100% exclusive high quality 3D models, designed for printing and tested one by one by our team.

 

2.3- OPTIMIZED SIZE

No need to do more prints with the same roll until you finish it!

The Makness 3D printing system allows traditional (1kg) format or small single only-use capsules, so you choose what you prefer! You can print any model you want with them because our catalog of 3D models is optimized for its use: each 3D model has been designed thinking in how many printing material is required, so there is no lack or exceed of printing filament when printing from a capsule.

 

We offer 2 sizes of capsules in a cool materials and colors variety:

MAKNESS ON THE NEWS

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE TEAM  

    

DESIGN PROCESS

Makness team has worked together in previous project where 3D prototyping was required. After thousands of failed prints: bad finishing results due to bad printing temperature or speed selection, lack of printing filament after several printing hours, object's shape were impossible to print or details were not designed for 3D printing....we realized why 3D printing was not extended to a massive domestic use. It was not easy!

With previous 3D printers you must spend hundreds of hours modeling the object, then you must launch at least 3 o 4 prints until you reach the finishing you want, and you must print 100 times with the same color because you only had 1Kg filament rolls.

That was when, in 2015, the Makness team decided to develop a whole 3D printing system for the whole family

Risks and challenges

Makness has already developed the whole 3D printing system since the last two years: printer, wireless interface, models catalog and capsules.

However, the firmware is still under development (quality and robustness improvements) and jump to mass production and homologation is still a goal. Most of current parts (capsules and some printer components) are 3D printed, so we still need to test the printer with 100% productive components (plastic injection parts, wiring...)

Mass production, customer real usage and logistics are always a challenge, but our team has the required experience and facilities, so we will communicate all our progress or delays to the bakers with total transparency.
